​Maine Holidays​

As big as all the other states put together, Maine is quintessential New England, chock full of pretty harbours, resort villages nestled in rolling hills, lighthouses atop craggy cliffs and quaint clapboard cafés dishing up freshly caught lobster. This is the perfect place to blow away the cobwebs, inhale the salty air and embrace the great outdoors, especially as Maine boasts New England’s only National Park, Acadia, an island oasis of soaring mountains and dramatic fjord-like estuaries.

For outdoor adventurers, the possibilities are endless on Maine holidays, whether it’s cycling along coastal inlets, riding river rapids or kayaking in peaceful harbours with playful seals. Choosing the best way to get where you want to go can be hard though, when the state is crisscrossed by gorgeous, empty roads. Perhaps head up Route 201, along the Kennebec River in search of moose, black bear and bobcats or take the Rangeley Lakes National Scenic Byway for picnics beside waterfalls in the summer or snowmobiling in the winter. Come in the autumn and the state will be flaunting her world famous fall colours.

But it’s not all about outdoor pursuits on holidays to Maine. Food lovers will be in their element with a fantastic choice of restaurants using locally sourced ingredients and the bounty of the sea. Beer connoisseurs will be bowled over by over 50 boutique breweries. Fans of retail therapy will love the outlet villages at Kittery and Freeport, not to mention the delightful antique shops around Wells, Wiscasset and beyond. And if art is your thing, then follow in the footsteps of Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer and Georgia O’Keefe, all inspired by Maine’s dramatic scenery and take the Maine Art Museum Trail, with some great galleries along the way.

For mouth-watering food, picture perfect New England scenery, exhilarating outdoor action, fabulous wildlife, boho boutiques, cosy guesthouses and locally brewed beer, come for the Maine experience on your New England holiday.

The Lighthouse State

There are more than 60 lighthouses strung along Maine’s 5,000 miles of coastline. Some of these are centuries old and each of them comes with its own collection of sea tales, from ghosts of keepers past to fateful star-crossed wrecks. You can find them by driving along coastal Route 1 or even take a lighthouse cruise from the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath.

Lobster

Nothing sums up Maine more eloquently than a freshly-steamed lobster with melted butter, eaten with your fingers. From road side rolls from a lobster shack to gourmet dishes prepared by award winning chefs, lobster is the order of the day here. It's even celebrated at an annual summer festival in Rockland. Why not find out how the catch of the day is caught with a lobster boat tour?

Windjamming

Windjammer is the New England word for a schooner and Maine is the only state to have a large, historic fleet of these magnificent ships. Take a cruise from Rockland or Camden and enjoy sea air, epic sunsets, beach picnics and up close glimpses of whales, puffins and seals. With their solid hulls, masts and billowing sails, windjammers are part of the region’s maritime heritage.

Maritime Museums

The first sea-bound ship out of North America was built in Maine and ‘Mainers’ have been sailing the world ever since. Learn about lobstering, shipbuilding and trading at one of the state’s fascinating museums. Hear tales of perilous voyages to distant lands at the Penobscot Marine Museum or find out more about lighthouse keepers and lenses at the Maine Lighthouse Museum in Rockland.

Acadia National Park

One of the oldest and most popular national parks in the USA, Acadia covers 40,000 acres of island and coast, just 3.5 hours northeast of Portland. The area is a mecca for hikers and mountain bikers. You can also sail around the islands, drive along the spectacular Schoodic National Scenic Byway or be the first person in America to see the sun rise if you climb to the summit of Cadillac Mountain.
