Sebago Lake State Park
While it may be the most obvious choice, it just may be the most beautiful. Listed as one of Maine's first five state parks, the 1400 square acres offer many options for recreation. Stay for a day or a week. Either option, you won't be disappointed.
Raymond's Frozen Custard
This place holds a sweet spot in my heart. I'm not sure if it's the place itself or the menu offerings but it reminds me of childhood. Whether it was to celebrate the first warm days of spring or to cool off on a hot day when a parent said, "Get in the car" this is exactly the type of place we'd go. It would seem by their reviews, that the sentiment is shared amongst many.
