Maine Summer

I'm always amazed when people actually leave Maine during the summer. Isn't this the time we are always waiting for? It's a three-month period (if we are lucky) of perfect weather, warm lakes, cold cocktails, and plenty of patio time. Why on Earth would anyone leave?

It is a short season, but it's sweet. I try to cherish every single day before the weather starts to turn. This includes trying to experience as much as humanly possible in the short period of time.

My wife and I have been all across the southern part of this state over the years, eating, drinking, hiking, and just experiencing everything Maine has to offer. There's a wealth of incredible experiences. However, some stand out more than others.
