"I was a little disappointed in..." Maine Tourist Trap Tip by Kay_C

Maine Tourist Traps: 16 reviews and 7 photos

I was a little disappointed in the way the coastal cities have become filled with outlet malls and chain restaurants/motels. I made advance plans (via the internet) to stay in Ogunquit not knowing anything about Maine - as we were driving south along the coast from Portland, I was really disappointed in what I saw along the way - I expected 'quaint coastal villages' but saw tourism overkill. Luckily I picked the right place to be and that was Ogunquit - I was extremely pleased with this little town and my experience there.
