We made the entire way around Ocean Avenue stopping at every stop and marveling at the views! Each one seemed better than the last. The beauty of it was almost heart aching! This will definitely be a highlight memory of our Maine trip!

Easy drive with spectacular views. Fun to stop at side of road and take breathtaking photos. Flags were flying at George H. W. Bush's home, we had read if the Texas flag was flying he was home.

It's not a specific tour that people are commenting on - it's a strip of road/area that is either driven, walked or biked on.
