Reid State Park bears the distinct honor as being Maine's first state-owned saltwater beach. In 1946, prosperous businessman and Georgetown resident Walter E. Reid donated land to the State of Maine to be preserved forever. Reid State Park is just down the road from our wedding venue and is always a must for me to visit when Derek and I go to Maine.

Popham Beach

Popham Beach

Popham Beach is my favorite place to visit when Derek and I travel to Maine. It's in Phippsburg which is where the Cummings side of the family is from! Fort Popham is amazing to explore and Popham beach is truly one of Maine's rare geologic landforms. At the southwestern end of the beach, access is granted via the popular state park. The northeastern end of the beach (my favorite) is accessed via paths around historic Fort Popham, a handful of private parking lots, and pathways, as well as the ocean view campground situated near the boundary of the state park.
