Maine is known for many things, but what it all comes down to is this: our four seasons.

Whether you're skiing down one of our many trails in December or taking a Casco Bay cruise in the sunny months of July, this state has something to offer for every season and any interest.

September 1st hit and everyone around me was "pumpkin this", and "pumpkin that", but I tried to hold on tight to the last few days of summer.

But, I can no longer ignore the patch of red in the green trees, and as soon as the temperature dipped and I smelt the crispy air, I was on the bandwagon.

Peak times vary year by year, but the best times to go sightseeing are typically mid-late September until mid-October. Wednesday marked the first foliage report of the 2021 season, which you can check out here.

Maine offers a killer fall that's hard to beat. As someone who just recently moved back home from the south, I want to make sure I hit the best spots for peak foliage. So, I've pulled together this list for us filled with iconic places in Maine for leaf peepin' this season.
