Offbeat attractions along the Southern Maine Coast

Maine is no doubt one of the most beautiful states we have ever been to.  We couldn’t help but fall in love with the quaint villages, dramatic shorelines, and the colorful summer flowers.  On our trip in August 2011, we spent 5 days exploring the southern coast of Maine, and even made a quick visit to Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  Truthfully, I cannot wait until the day we can go back and see the northern part of Maine.

By the end of our trip, we learned that Maine is so much more than lighthouses, beaches, and lobsters.  We actually surprised ourselves with the various places that we were able to visit – some were carefully planned, while others were done on a whim.  Those unplanned visits led us to some interesting sites that many people overlook on their travels to Maine.

Below is my list of Southern Maine’s lesser-known destinations.

Eartha, located in Yarmouth, is the world’s largest rotating globe.

•Video link on bio• If you love to watch the movie A Christmas Story, you will thoroughly enjoy this short video I’ve put together. This video documents our tour through the house recreating our favorite scenes from the movie and follows us through the museum where actual costumes and props are housed. It was definitely the highlight of my trip to Cleveland!
Last Sunday was the perfect fall day to roam around the forests deep in the heart of South Carolina.
How much have we lost in the name of “progress?” Large portions of the southeastern region of the United States used to be covered with floodplain forests. Overtime trees were cut to build ships, railroads, and various other structures. The floodplains were drained to make way for farms and cities. What little still remains is nowadays protected within entities such as the Congaree National Park.

I was hoping to find some peace and quiet at Berry College’s vast campus. Instead, so many people took advantage of Saturday’s beautiful weather. We saw three quinceanera celebrations, a wedding, and various people doing random photo shoots.
Forever rooting for the #ClemsonTigers
