Vacationing In Maine: The Real Four Seasons

Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring: Maine is a four season state with so much to see and do! No matter what time of year, you are sure to find something going on and something to appeal to every age. Summer brings the warm weather and along with that an opportunity to enjoy great beaches, great picnic spots, hiking, biking and boating. Whether you go to the Western Mountains or the southern coast, Maine has earned the title, Vacationland for good reason. The Fall brings the change of season and Maine’s landscape turns the trees into a blaze of reds, orange and yellows. Maine is known as a haven for leaf peepers and one trip out during the fall is easy to see why. The fall is also the time of year when recreational hunting begins. Many of the summer cabins available for rent during the summer months turn into hunting cabins for fall hunters. Winter brings the snow and big mountain skiing. With ski resorts like Sugarloaf and Sunday River, skiers don’t have far to travel for some of the best skiing in the northeast. In addition to skiing Maine has one of the most extensive snowmobile trails systems in New England. Spring brings warmer temperatures and melting snow. Melting snow leads to water run- off into the rivers resulting in perfect rafting conditions. White water rafters flock to the Forks to ride Magic Falls down through the upper Kennebec River. For thrill seekers, the Penobscot River provides Class V rapids which will take your breath away! Spring is also a great time of year for fishermen, who enjoy the benefits of open water fishing and reap big fish rewards from our lakes, rivers and oceans. Maine is your four season destination for natives and visitors so come out and discover all Maine has to offer!
