Summer Roadtrip; Beach hopping in Maine

Few things say summer like taking a roadtrip and hitting up the beach. Taking a summer roadtrip can be a lot of fun; exploring new places, trying new foods, and enjoying each others company.

Hitting the beach along the way? well, that’s just the cherry on top. Most people are familiar with the beaches along the Florida Coast, the Gulf Coast, and California Coast…even if they have never visited them. But there are tons of other great beach destinations to choose from.

Maine has its own reputation…Lobster anyone? However, they have a nice little collection of great beach destinations of their own. All within driving distance of Brunswick, which also happens to be the home of Bodwell Chrysler Jeep Dodge, After all, you can’t roadtrip without a car, and Bodwell has a great selection of the perfect beach cruising vehicles.

Old Orchard Beach:

Ogunquit Beach:

3.5 miles of white sandy beach, with little to no rocks, a gentle surf, and tons of family fun! Beaches that have no rocks get an A+ in my book. You can stroll the beautiful beach, take in the surf and the sun, and wade in the water with your little ones!

Reid State Park:

Maine’s First State-owned Salt-Water beach. Wide sandy beaches, and huge sand dunes. Not to mention the nesting site of endangered shorebirds. This is a great choice, especially if you are planning this roadtrip with your kiddos. Surf, sand, and sun aside; the educational aspect of this beach makes it a must-see destination!

My suggestion? get a Jeep…not only does Bodwell have a great selection of them, but they are great beach riders thanks to the 4×4 capabilities. Not to mention, you can pop off the hardtop, and stash your surfboards! Not a surfer? that’s ok, pile the family in, and go for a drive down the beach, camp under the stars, and make some awesome summer memories!
