Hey guys, Andy from Bucket List Freak Here, And when one thinks of the state of Maine, there are many things that come to mind. For Foodies, Maine Tourism offers clams, lobster, and acres of fresh produce, for those who love to shop, there are Antique stores, art galleries, and large shopping malls. Golfers fill find dozens of locations to practice their swing. Outdoor enthusiasts will find quiet state parks and for weekend getaways there is a plethora of historic B&Bs.
Yes, Maine definitely has something for everyone. To get started on a Maine adventure, here are the top 5 things to do in Maine.
Get an adrenaline rush while racing down the slopes of some of the best ski resorts in the Northeast. Whether it is skiing and tubing at Mount Abram, night skiing along the Canadian border at Mars Hills Big Rock, snowboarding at challenging ski runs at Sugarloaf, or family friendly Titcomb Mountain, Maine has a long list of ski resorts from which to choose.
Play a round at some of Maine’s championship golf courses. If you love golf, there are sure a lot of amazing courses to check out in Maine. Golfers can tee off at the 72 par course at Point Sebago Golf Resort in Casco where the length ranges from 4,900 yards from the forward tee to just over 7,000 yards at the back. Or perhaps, a visit to the Fox Ridge Golf Club in Auburn set on 200 acres of rolling farmland or the delightful greens of the Nonesuch Golf Course in Scarborough.
Go on a lighthouse tour. Due to its rocky shoreline, inlets, and peninsulas, Maine is home to 5 dozen lighthouses. These have amazing history connected to them, and it’s a great place to have some romantic time alone with your loved one. Some tourist favorites are the Cape Neddick Light, the West Quoddy Head Light, the Grindle Point Lighthouse and Sailors’ Memorial Museum, the Portland Head Light and Museum, the Isle Haut Light which offers overnight accommodations, and the Monhegan Light and Museum.
Cross a covered bridge. Maine was once the site of 120 covered bridges, but due to storms, floods, modern highways, and fire, today only 9 remain and can be found in the western region of the state. Its most famous bridge is the Sunday River Bridge (also known as the Artist’s Covered Bridge). Other impressive Maine bridges include the Waldo-Hancock suspension bridge and the Cobwork Bridge.
Go swimming or play on the shore along the craggy and beautiful Maine beaches. There is surfing at Long Sands near Route 1; the beautiful yet cold Sand Beach at Acadia National Park, and family friendly beaches like the Old Orchard Beach, Popham Beach and Ogunquit. Matter of fact, the Old Orchard Beach is voted the best beach year after year due to the nearby amusement park, arcade, and entertainment venues.
On a Maine vacation, the main thing is to have a good time. Come see what great family memories are waiting to be made in the beautiful northeastern state.
