I'm currently trying to plan my family's first trip to Maine. We've never been to the region and are looking forward to a relaxing vacation. We're hoping to find the perfect location for the kids (4 of them-ages 11,6,4and2). I'm hoping someone can suggest a sandy not too crowded beach during August. We're trying to find a vacation house rental that has beach/water access for the ease of the children. Yet we would like to spend a day or two at one of the many beaches in Maine. I've read that Old Orchard Beach offers seven miles of beach but is it too crowded in August? I've also read about beauty of Long and Short Sands Beach. I'd love to find the perfect spot that the kids would really enjoy and remember. This will be their first trip to the ocean. Any activities that anyone could recommend would be great. Thanks!
