April is always a gamble here in Maine on whether or not we’re going to be feeling spring weather or getting dumped on with snow again.

So far, the weather forecast looks promising and I see warm, sunny days ahead.

We are fast-tracking our way to summer, arguably the best time of year to live in Vacationland, and there are so many things to do in a short period of time. Our period of summer is short and sweet, so our warm days are often jampacked with adventure.

With rocky shores to marvel at, mountains to climb, and lakes to swim in, it’s time to start planning out the best days of summer in Maine.

Portland, Maine, Boating Adventures

There are few things in this country as marvelous as Maine’s coast and we are blessed to be surrounded by such natural beauty. With thousands of islands, wildlife, and marine landmarks, you can’t spend a summer in Maine without taking a boat out in Casco Bay.

Portland has all sorts of different boat adventure options in the city but a new one is coming this very summer in 2023. New England Eco Adventures is launching a site here in Portland with boat tours starting on June 16.
