Try the Landings restaurant in Rockland. They will be closing soon for the season and they have a limited schedule now so you should call for the days they are open first. The restaurant is located within feet of the ocean and is easily the busiest restaurant in the area during the warmer months. Hope this helps.

We have just a few days until we head out to Maine. Thanks to the great responses from this forum we are really excited about it. We just returned from a trip to Oregon and Idaho, and it was colder there than the weather reports tell us things have been in Maine. Has it been unseasonably warm there? From what I have read Acadia park is pretty much closed. Would there still be some areas of the park open? Would it be worth the drive from Rockland?

Fireworks in Camden? Sounds like folks in Maine know how to celebrate New Years Eve!

Thanks again for all the kind, informative responses! Any last minute tips? Will there be any snow? See you all in a few days!

There is no snow on the ground right now in the portland area or along the coast. Temperatures have been unseasonably warm for awhile. It's generally in the upper 30s or low 40s for daytime highs. You've probably left by now though. Please tell us all about your trip when you return to san diego.

Try Cooks Lobster House, Rt. 24 Bailey Island. Its about 45 min north of Portland, near Brunswick. Also a great area for photo ops. They are open year round.

Smile New Years Eve in Rockland Thanks Everyone!!!

Our plan is to arrive in Portland on the 28th of December, spend a couple of days, then drive in a rental up to Rockland for the remaining week. A good place to pick up local winter clothing in Porland? Tips on areas of beauty? Things to avoid? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
We had an incredible time in mid-coast Maine for our week and a half at New Years. We know the weather was unseasonable, however there was some beautiful snow around New Years, and we enjoyed our trip very much. Mainers are a friendly pleasant groups of folks, which made the trip even more enjoyable. From the Portland Head Light to Bar Harbor and in to Augusta, then back down to Booth Bay we had a fantastic time.

Everyone: Moody's Diner in Waldoboro is a must. Darimascotta River Grille was a wonderful place to eat, as well as Cafe Miranda in Rockland. And in Freeport there is a little restaurant, maybe Morton's or something like that, down the side street by the Mangy Moose store, where the best lobster rolls can be found.

Again, thanks to all who gave us such helpful suggestions for our trip. We used many of them, and will be back to mid-coast Maine again, no doubt!
