Connecticut is known as “The Constitution State” based upon the claim that Connecticut had the first written constitution in history, the Fundamental Orders of 1638/39. In Connecticut we camped at Nelsons Family Campground in East Hampton. It was close to the very picturesque Lake Pocotopaug.
Hampton Falls is in the extreme southeastern portion of New Hampshire, that part of the state that you pass through if you are driving from southern Maine heading towards Massachusetts. While here we parked at the Wakeda Campground located between Hampton Falls and Exeter. We were there during their “Christmas in July Event”.
From Acadia National Park, we moved further south along the Maine coast to park at the Blueberry Pond Campground near Freeport, ME. Established in 1789, Freeport is a town that has transformed itself into an outlet shopping village. I think it all started with L.L. Bean since this is where this retailer of outdoor clothing and equipment got its start. Now there is a vast selection of outlet stores, some of which occupy original vintage buildings.
