A place for the geek in all of us.
Maine is a vacation spot for New Englanders, whole generations head up there in the summer months, renting cottages and hanging out in the wilderness. Why shouldn't they be, it's the way life should be way up there! It's wild and filled with adventures I worked there for a while as a camp riding (horses) instructor-loved the wilderness around me. I'm planning a trip now again, I haven't been there in quite some time. It's a wonderful place, filled with lots of animals, lobster rolls and more.
Any adventure to main requires you to visit Arcadia National Park, it is so beautiful. Mist falls on the water in the early morning, pebbles the colors of easter eggs rest naturally on the water-and giant birds threaten to swoop down and carry you off. It's a pretty cool place.
Pebble beach was soo cool, apparently visitors like to take rock, don't do it-signs posted everywhere advise against taking them!
Then there are the white water rafting trips. Plus, the hiking- you can't go wrong with that. There are tons of companies that operate in the summer months offering hiking and water rafting. I tried the double dip trip on the Penobscot.
Plus you can stay in a Wilderness lodge. These places are rustic, and beautiful. I love it here, you feel like you are in a Last of the Mohicans experience.
So what are you waiting for? Go try Maine this summer, or this month. If you are coming from another country and want to visit, check out the Maine touring page.
