Do yourself a favor and drive up Route 1 along the gorgeous Maine coastline. You'll know then why the state's earned its reputation as "Vacationland."

Stop along the way if you like, but whatever you do, don't pass up the opportunity to stop off in Bar Harbor for the breathtaking views at Acadia National Park. If you're feeling adventurous, set out to hike Cadillac Mountain. If not, take in the landscape with a table at Jordan Pond House, where lunch comes with a view — and a popover!

You'll need to do two things upon your arrival: get yourself an authentic Maine lobster roll, stat, and get yourself to Freeport — not just to check out the L.L. Bean flagship store (open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year) and take your photo with a giant Bean boot — but for some serious outlet power shopping. Freeport is stocked with outlets like Coach, Burberry, and J.Crew, so get your power-shop on by day, then head to the Old Port for a sunset view and dinner by the water.
