Best of Maine 2010
Mainers are nothing if not opinionated; and we at Down East are no exceptions. We have our likes and dislikes, our favorite things and pet peeves — Maine manners dictate that one doesn’t volunteer one’s viewpoint unless asked, but then all bets are off. Because the Down East editors get pressed regularly for our advice about where to GO, EAT, and SHOP, we have taken these inquiries as an invitation to offer this, our annual Best of Maine list. As always, we logged literally thousands of miles in search of the finest restaurants, retail stores, and rocky trails. This year, we’ve also enlisted the help of a few other experts. Lastly, we’ve broken with tradition and asked you, our readers, to name your own favorites — you’ll find your picks. If you care to take issue with any of our choices — or those of your fellow readers — we welcome your input at DownEast.com. We expect you will have your own opinions. Consider yourself invited to offer them.
