One of the state's best beaches is just an hour from Portland!

Over the weekend, I decided to pack up the kids and take a little road trip up north to the town of Phippsburg, to check out Popham Beach. We live in Portland, so we usually stick to the nearby beaches, East End and Willard. We've also hit Old Orchard Beach a few times. So this was a nice little change of pace for us.

As soon as we got there, I realized it was totally worth the drive up. It's a HUGE beach, and it wasn't crowded at all. And it was a perfect beach day!

The girls and I had a great time. I would highly recommend that you check out this great spot!
