5 Things To Do in Maine This Weekend That Don’t Involve a Beach

Maine’s sandy beaches are often filled to the brim this time of the summer. These new ideas for unique adventures will show you a new view of Vacationland. Waterfalls, schooners, lighthouses, and horses. Where will your adventure take you this weekend?


 

Some are short trips, others are for the more experienced hiker, and some you can swim under for the most incredible summer cool-off spot. Take your adventures outside this weekend and see some incredible waterfalls.

There’s nothing like the ocean breeze and crashing waves to make you truly appreciate the beauty of Maine’s coast. Portland Schooner Company gets you out on the water with their authentic sailing vessels, Bagheera and Wendameen.

Need a getaway? Try something a little different for your weekend retreat, like staying in a lighthouse. Little River Lighthouse in Cutler Harbor is fully restored to it’s 1888 glory with a cozy keeper’s cottage with all the creature comforts you need for a relaxing weekend.

Peaks Island is one of the most visited islands in Casco Bay. Tourists and locals alike love this adorable little island just a quick ferry ride away from the big city of Portland. You’ve probably heard about the bike rental shop, and the golf cart tours, and the on-foot exploring you can do at Battery Steele. You may not know that Peaks Island can be experienced from a totally different view — between the ears of your noble steed on horseback, thanks to Horse Island Camp.

Need a quiet, beautiful place to reflect on life or sip your coffee (or glass of wine)? These vistas in the Portland area are among the most gorgeous views in the state. Find a bench, kick back, and soak in all the natural beauty that surrounds us in our home state of Maine.
