What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Maine

What to Pack for Your Weekend Getaway in Maine

You wouldn't want your vacation inconvenienced because of something you forgot to bring along. Always make sure your suitcase has what you need, when you need it. The following items should top your list when packing for a Maine visit.

  • 1. Shoes

    You'll want to bring comfortable footwear for less intensive activities such as wandering around towns and attending casual dinners. And if you intend to hike rockier trails, a sturdy pair of boots comes in handy.

  • 2. Clothing

    Your packing list should include at least one pair of jeans and a few T-shirts for longer days of sightseeing. Include quick-drying, water-resistant pants for watersports and hiking. A cozy sweater and other base layers will keep you warm if you’re visiting in colder months.

  • 3. Gadgets

    You certainly don’t want your phone going off when you’re out kayaking, so remember to carry a backup phone charger. Pack a good camera to document every delightful moment of your trip for your family and friends.

  • 4. Accessories

    A lightweight, easily packable umbrella should top your list of accessories, especially if you intend to visit in dreary days. A pair of sunglasses is ideal for outdoor adventures. Depending on the time of the visit and your taste of fashion, you might consider a baseball cap, knit hat, or sun hat.

  • 5. Toiletries and other essentials

    Insect repellant will protect you from bugs and ticks when visiting in warm weather. Sunscreen is necessary for any trip, at any time of year. If you're flying, consider packing earbuds to listen to an audiobook about Maine.
