Maine Overview

Bar Harbor ME Hotels

 

As the northernmost New England state, a simple description of Maine is impossible. It is rugged, ocean-sprayed cliffs and it is mellow jazz notes at a summer festival; it is soaring pine trees blanketed in snow and it is sweet lobster paired with golden, drawn butter; it is luxury, modern Maine hotels and it is the most charming, sea-side inns.

The largest city, Portland, is on Casco Bay in southern Maine; it’s a perfect place to begin an exploration of the state’s many historic lighthouses.  Just an hour to the north, the inland city of Augusta plays capital and is home to the State Museum and a fine Arboretum. Bar Harbor is a wildly popular tourist destination. Right on the Atlantic Ocean, it is surrounded on its other sides by Acadia National Park, where you can climb the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic Coast to watch the sun rise, take a 20-mile Park Loop Road, watch for whales or kayak the coastline. White Mountain National Forest covers 47,000 acres in Western Maine, a perfect locale for fall leaf peeping.

A great way to explore the entire state is to utilize The Maine Birding Trail’s maps, with over 80 official sites and hundreds of others to boot. You might also enjoy visiting the seven art-filled museums on The Maine Art Museum Trail. The Mainers welcome you year-round to their beautiful state!

Best Maine Parks

Acadia National Park

Drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain and along the 27-mile Park Loop Road to explore the forests, ocean and mountains which Acadia boasts. Ranger-led tours are offered mid-May to October; the online newspaper Beaver Log is recommended for pre-planning. Try one of four different narrated boat cruises, hop aboard Oli's Trolley or take a scenic carriage ride. Wild Gardens are located next to the Sieur de Monts Nature Center and Islesford Historical Museum is found on Little Cranberry Island. Find Discount Hotels near Acadia National Park.

Baxter State Park

Primarily a hiking park, the best way to explore Baxter to its fullest is to hike some of its over 200 miles of trails. It is an easy hike to Big and Little Niagara Falls, whereas an all-day ascension of Katahdin, the highest peak in Maine, is another story! Enjoy fishing, several picnic and swimming areas and abundant wildlife. Find Discount Hotels near Baxter State Park.

Funtown Splashtown

Rides are found on land and water at this duo of fun park. From the wooden coaster Excalibur to a splashing log flume ride to bumper boats, the whole family can let loose. Drive around in a Model-T, let the kiddies bounce 20 feet in the air on Frog Hopper and enjoy some old-fashioned skee ball and other arcade games. Eight water slides can be found at Portland Pirates Paradise; the whole family can raft together on the Tornado. Additional thrill rides are expected in 2012. Find Discount Hotels near Funtown Splashtown.

Reid State Park

A classic Maine beach, complete with crashing waves, nooks and crannies of rocky inlets, the rare stretch of sand and even rarer large sand dunes. Reid also provides nesting areas for endangered least terns and piping plovers. Griffith Head gives outstanding views of islands and lighthouses. Find Discount Hotels near Reid State Park.
