Whether you depart after dinner or the next morning, traveling north of Boston and into Maine involves the treacherous hazards of many unmarked rocks submerged at high tide—great for lobsters, but potentially disastrous for hulls and keels. Plan to dock in Kennebunkport, Maine, best known as the summer home of former presidents George Herbert Walker Bush and George W. Bush. The lobster-trap-lined docks offer views of boats bobbing in the water and a lone lighthouse off in the distance. Among the numerous restaurants, bars, and shops at Dock Square just a short stroll away, Chicks Marina is a good spot to rest. When the fog rolls in, nothing tastes better than a bowl of seafood stew, chock-full of mussels, clams, shrimp, and fresh fish, and doused in a tomato saffron broth. Few do it better than The Ramp Bar & Grill, a small waterfront pub that also serves chowder, lobster rolls, and fish and chips. If you want to go upscale, Executive Chef Jonathan Cartwright deserves all the accolades he has received for his innovative cooking at The White Barn Inn, a brief taxi ride from the Yachtsman Marina. His four-course dinner and nine-course tasting menus rely heavily on local fish and game, and can be paired with vintage wines from the inn's 7,000-bottle cellar.
