Suitcase Adventures: Coastal Maine

This is our last week of school and I’m excited for our summer travels this year. Our first destination coming up soon is a vacation in Maine. We’ll be staying in Kennebunkport, but going to a few different areas during our time there. Our boys love it there, so it’s nice to take the whole family.

Here’s a few key things I’m packing for our summer vacation to Maine. I always pack a good mix of layers, because sometimes it’s warm and other days can be cooler. Also, rain gear is a good idea too, if you are venturing along the coast of Maine this summer. If you stay for a week or longer you could encounter a little summer rain shower.

What to Pack for a Maine Summer

We’ll be on the beach, going for oceanside walks, sailing, having dinners out, and exploring rocky shorelines. It’s good to bring a mix of footwear for all terrains and a variety of bags for different activities.

I love the Americana palette for summer and a mix of summer dresses, sweaters, and linen pants usually go with me to Maine. I’ll throw in some shorts and workout clothes too. Some days I end up wearing swimsuits and beach cover-ups during the daytime, and then wash up and head to a nice dinner in a summer dress with an optional sweater.

I’ll be back next week with some great beach gear and travel gear we are using on this trip and all summer long.

Happy travels,
