Check out the article by Anne Banas, a SmarterTravel.com Staff Writer, that just came out today on USAToday.com. She details how Ogunquit is a great escape under $500 – and she’s completely right!
Ms. Banas covers some other local hotels and did online research at travel sites such as Trip Advisor, which is very useful. However, calling the Meadowmere directly will get you the best deal and make you dollars stretch further. And since breakfast is included, you’ll have more to spend other meals – and perhaps a special trip to Harbor Candy Shop for a little chocolate (it’s a vacation!).
For dinner, on Friday night, make reservations at a local restaurant for their Bistro night. And follow up with free entertainment with Maxwell’s karaoke in the center of town or sing a-long at the Front Porch. Dinner and a show (sort of).
On Saturday, if you feel like exploring, head to Kennebunk for the Cruisin’ Car Show – free admission. Or check out the Barn Galleries season opening exhibits (yep – free). Another choice – walk Marginal Way, Ogunquit’s gorgeous cliff side walk (still free). Grab a lobster roll for lunch – there are plenty of really good choices and you have to have lobster in Maine! Plus, you will want to leave room for dinner. Ogunquit is known for its cuisine and many choices can offer plenty of food – including Jonathan’s Restaurant, which is next door. Perfect if you want to stay close and hit the outdoor hot tub.
On Sunday, get a little cooking education at Stonewall Kitchen’s new cooking school – learn how to make a German Breakfast (treats included – so now worries on lunch). Finally, on the way home, take advantage of Kittery Outlets sales days (Coupons are often available at the Welcome Center).
