Cosying up to the Canada border, Maine is a land of dualities. In winter, its small towns and vast wilds are blanketed in snow, and in spring and summer the natural scenery explodes with colour.
No matter when you visit, you’ll find an exciting array of activities and attractions to indulge in, and with Newmarket Holidays Maine travel packages you can get the best of this wonderfully diverse region.
Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is a highlight of any Maine holiday. With rugged terrain alongside sandy beaches and lush forest it’s one of the country’s more varied national parks. Other unforgettable natural attractions in Maine include the tranquil Ogunquit and Old Orchard Beaches (just thirty minutes from each other), the dramatic yet unforgettable beauty of Casco Bay, and the vast, scenic Camden Hills State Park. If you want to see the state from the water you’re in luck too: most towns have companies that offer boat tours of the local area, and from May to October you can combine this with whale watching.
Although it consists mostly of small towns and fishing villages, there’s plenty of culture to soak in during a Maine holiday. Perkins Cove is known for its wonderful artisan stores and excellent local food scene. It’s also blessed with unforgettable viewpoints, making it the ideal walking tour stop-off. The Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine, is one of the best in the country, offering the chance to view works from a number of America's most famous artists. And, if you’re with the family, Maine is home to several excellent amusement parks, including Palace Playland and Aquaboggan Water Park.
Maine is famous for its blueberries
Therefore, it makes sense one of their most-loved dishes is Blueberry Pie. Made with local fruit, it's known for being sweet, moreish, and filling: it’s everything you could want in a dessert and more.
If you’re looking for a cheap and hearty hiker’s meal, then Bean-Hole Beans are for you. Effectively a pork and bean casserole, they’re extra special thanks to being cooked overnight in a hole dug into the ground (hence the name bean-hole). The depth of flavour is unbeatable, it's smoky, sweet, and everything in between.
