Getting There

Getting to Maine

Maine is served by the Portland International Jetport (PWM), where vacationers tend to fly in from New York City (La Guardia), Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, or other major travel hubs. There is also a bus service from Boston through Maine's main cities, and a train service to Maine's largest city, Portland. A rental car is great for exploring the state, as its attractions are often scattered along the cliffs, mountains, islands, and national parks.

Food & Drinks

Iconic Dishes of Maine

A lobster dinner is one of the classic options in Maine and includes a whole boiled lobster accompanied by a narrow fork, a cracking tool, and melted butter. Corn on the cob is the usual accompaniment, while steamed clams just make it even more luxurious. Head to the Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier to enjoy this dish on picnic tables that overlook Chauncey Creek.

A blueberry pie is a classic local dessert, as wild blueberries are the state's official fruit. Taste the best pie in Maine at the Pie in the Sky Bakery at Cape Neddick. This family-owned bakery doesn't use any trans-fats or preservatives in their baked goods and offers you mouthwatering, handcrafted pies. Maine's summer blueberries are succulent — if you have the chance to go blueberry picking, go for it.

Weather & Climate

The Weather in Maine

Fall is a great time to visit, as the leaves start changing color. This is also the time of the harvest festival and high lobster season. Nature lovers can also enjoy a moose safari in the wild!

Although winter gets chilly, vacationers will be out in full force sledding, skiing, and snowshoeing on the slopes. Put your snowman building skills to the test at the Bethel Winterfest, or seek refuge from the cold in Maine's numerous museums and shopping malls. The end-of-year festivities are magical, to say the least, but make sure to book your Maine vacation rental well in advance during this period. The same applies to summer and spring when visitors enjoy the beaches and mountains. There are reasons to visit Maine all year round.

Attractions

Sights and Sounds

Almost synonymous with Maine itself, the massive number of lighthouses that dot the coastline are all waiting to be explored. Meanwhile, the Maine Art Museum Trail will lead you through eight museums featuring more than 73,000 pieces of art. Budding artists will love the creative colonies and visual arts schools that welcome newcomers and collaborators. The performing arts scene is vibrant too, with plenty of theaters, musicals, and concerts to choose from.

The Maine Center for Crafts is a testament to the region's creative and resourceful craft legacies that have been passed on from generation to generation. The state’s maritime heritage is well established at the Maine Maritime Museum.
