Beach Bums: Crescent Beach State Park, Maine

Hey All!  Hope everyone had a great long weekend!  We spent some time at the beach trying to soak in the last days of summer.  It reminded me a lot of our vacation up to Maine and New Hampshire a few weeks ago.  If you want more information about our road trip you can read about our route from New York to Maine and how we entertained our boys in Portland in previous blog posts.

While in Portland, Maine we wanted to spend a day at the beach since our boys love playing in the sand and surf so much.  I did a lot of research and found Crescent Beach State Park as very family friendly and only about 20 minutes from Downtown Portland.  This sounded like a perfect location for the day!

Crescent Beach did not disappoint!  The beach itself was not very deep but had a long stretch of sand in either direction.  Parking was plentiful and there are bathrooms (so important with little kids!), shower/changing area, and food at the entrance of the beach.  We brought a picnic for ourselves but there was plenty of options at the little grill/food area. The waves were very calm which made the water really kid friendly although pretty cold!  The beach and landscape itself was beautiful and people we so friendly!  I highly recommend a stop at Crescent Beach during your stay in Portland.

Happy Beach Bumming!!!
