Choose Your Own Maine Adventure in Spring and Summer

Like those first green bursts of grass after the thaw, spring and summer bring color and fun to Maine. From outdoor water adventures to afternoons of outlet shopping, the possibilities are endless.

In the spring, you can still enjoy skiing at Sunday River or spy the famed warbler migration from a perch on Saddleback Mountain. Maine Maple Sunday is a family-favorite event in March.

Enjoy the season’s freshest local ingredients, from just-harvested fiddleheads to Maine’s famous seafood.

Plan a whitewater rafting adventure on the Kennebec River or a fly-fishing expedition or Moose Safari on Moosehead Lake. Hike the beautifully rugged North Woods. Take a whale-watching cruise.

Drive our magnificent, lighthouse dotted coast with miles of clean, sandy beaches stretching from York to Lubec. Enjoy strolls through quintessential fishing villages like Stonington or historic downtowns such as Farmington. Hop on a ferry and go island hopping on Casco Bay.

Catch some local flavor, figuratively and literally, at community festivals like the well-known Yarmouth Clam Festival, the Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland and the Machias Wild Blueberry Festival.

Enjoy summer Shakespeare in Kennebunk, or tour a Windjammer in Camden.

Camp, hike and explore Acadia National Park or one of our many state parks that span all regions of Maine. Or cozy up at a luxurious resort and spa along the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

Rent a bike and spend the afternoon looping around Peaks Island, or take a weekend to explore Monhegan Island’s artists’ colony.

Take home a treasure from a flea market in Wiscasset or from one of Freeport’s or Kittery’s outlet stores, or take in a Portland Sea Dogs baseball game with your family.

There’s so much to see and do in Maine. Plan your trip today.
