The Unsuspecting Maine Truck Stop Where You Can Pull Over And Have An Amazing Meal
It’s not every day that Maine makes national media. But, if you’re a late-night TV fan you might remember one of the funniest Saturday Night Live skits in recent history that was dedicated to a Vacationland restaurant. With words like “butter!” and “flaky!” this truck stop restaurant found its way into the hearts of people across America. But, only we are lucky enough to call it our own. The next time you drive by, be sure to stop in for one of the best state treats Maine has to offer!

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
