Imagine the storybook version of coastal Maine: rocky beaches, bikes with big wooden baskets, and talking lobsters with adorably thick Mainer accents. Apart from the English-speaking crustaceans, this is Peaks Island - a small island three miles off Portland’s coast. It’s one of our favorite places to visit, and it’s only reachable by ferry (runs every hour and costs around $8 roundtrip). Once you get there, rent a bike, explore the beaches and vacation houses, and eat a required lobster roll at Island Lobster Company. It doesn’t matter how many you’ve already eaten on this trip, this one will taste special just because of where you are.
