Relive history at one of Maine historic forts or settlements. See the remains of an 1814 era fort at Eastern Promenade in Portland visit Fort Foster’s or Fort McClary in Kittery, or wander through historic downtown York, where you can tour a colonial-era jail and schoolhouse.
Maine’s beaches are unlike any other, and it’s not uncommon to find lobsters, crabs, and other sea life on the rocky shore. From our facilities, it’s an easy ride to Old Orchard Beach (with its famous boardwalk and amusement rides), Wells beach (that provides the best dunes in the state), or Longsands, Shortsands, and Harbor beaches in historic York.
Maine’s winter sports mean that there’s always something to do, whether it’s skiing (with Sunday River just a few hours away and smaller slopes like Shawnee Peak a snowball’s toss away), snowshoeing, or ice fishing.
This is largely just a sample: Maine is the nation’s secret gem with many secret antique stores, art galleries, and outlet malls. Outdoor enthusiasts will find quiet state parks to hike, mountain to climb or ski, lakes and rivers to swim, and an endless coastline to explore.Get some ideas
