When thinking about Maine, a lot of people immediately imagine the coast. Rocky and rough, it’s one of the state’s most defining features.

While we love these areas in the summer, year-round they’re beautiful for explorations. And searching for the elusive sand dollar is a great activity at one southern Maine beach!
