Yarmouth, Maine, a small town just 12 miles away from Portland, offers locals and visitors alike some great dining options. This ocean-side town is the site of one of the state’s most popular annual traditions, the Yarmouth Clam Festival, drawing 120,000 people to dine on clams for a three-day weekend. You can also get some of the best crabmeat and lobster on the east coast. Outside of the seafood options, you'll find plenty of cafés, grills, and American traditional dining options. Be sure to try some blueberry pie, the state's official dessert, or a whoopie pie, a New England tradition made up of creme or frosting sandwiched between two pieces of chocolate cake.
