- Kennebunk and Southern Maine
The charming communities along Maine's southern coast are perfect for spending time with your sweetheart, nestled away from the hustle and bustle in one of the region's many historic inns. The picturesque villages of York, Ogunquit, Kennebunk, and Kennebunkport have a number of remarkable inns and bed and breakfasts. Plus, there are intimate restaurants, quaint shops and unique galleries to complement your romantic stay.
- Bar Harbor, Maine: Acadia National Park
Since the mid-19th century, Bar Harbor has been a special destination. 100-year-old inns with modern comforts and fine restaurants abound, along with shops that stay open late in the season. Since this seaside resort is the entrance to Acadia National Park, unspoiled natural beauty is on the doorstep. Romantic, relaxing and the best of both worlds.
- Great New Hampshire Resorts: Colonial Grand Old Hotels
Grand resorts, with ballrooms, broad porches and sweeping lawns, are back in fashion. Among New Hampshire’s impressive array of restored 19th century grandes dames is the Omni Mount Washington Hotel & Resort (1902), where Winston Churchill, among others, set up the International Monetary Fund in 1944. Door plaques tell you which famous person slept in which room. The re-born Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa (1865) in Whitefield boasts a fine golf course; at the heart of Jackson Village, The Wentworth (1869) has a course next door.
- Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire: M/S Mount Washington
Ringed by mountains and dotted with islands, the 72 square miles of Lake Winnipesaukee are best seen from a boat. The 230-ft. M/S Mount Washington has dinner dance cruises, as well as a host of specially themed cruises. The live bands range from the Rockin' 50s and Swinging 60s to Country & Western.
