Maine Travel

By: Kent Pinkerton

Maine is wild and beautiful. From rugged woods to skiing and ice fishing; mountains and lakes to national parks, there is much to see here.

The natural wonders and recreation activities of Maine are spread over a very large area, and it would be impossible to see it all over one visit, so it is advisable to have a planned itinerary .The western Maine mountains spread up from Bethel to the highest peak of Mount Katahdin and are home to fast, furious rivers, lush hills, and plenty of outdoor activities such as water sports, hiking, etc. The rocky coastal area boasts of art and poetry. The southern coast is full of beautiful beaches, and further down east is the famous Acadia national park. The northern part of Maine has plenty of uninhabited areas with lots of woods and lush green nature.

The seasons in the New England area are long and well defined, with long rainy periods. There is no best time to visit Maine, though the busiest tourist season in some areas tends to be summer. One should expect to pay premium rates at hotels and restaurants. Fall in Maine—as in the other three New England states—is one of the finest spectacles in all of the United States, with the hills full of red and orange foliage. It is a very popular time to travel, with bus tours flocking like wild birds. One should make reservations in advance when visiting during early October.

Winter brings about tourism in the ski resorts, especially during the school vacation days. This is when the rates of hotels on and around the slopes are the highest. The state of Maine is happy to answer queries and send information to travelers who call or write ahead of their travel dates.
