As for dining in Maine, it goes without saying that lobster is on the menu. Still, there are a few things to know. Head to Dennent's Warf for lunch on the pier before checking out the historical sites of Castine, home to the Maine Maritime Academy, and one of the oldest towns in New England. Then, if you're feeling ambitious, head to Bar Harbor to bike and hike Acadia National Park, take in the sites, and finish off the day with a popover and a killer view at the Jordan Pond House. Wherever you end up, don't forget a great camera, like this Nikon ($499) to capture the sites.
