28 Jul 10 Maine Family Vacations – Hoorah for Summer Getaways!
Summer is family time, and there is nothing like getting outdoors with the kids and playing on rivers and trails to give everyone something to talk about for the rest of the year. Big travel vacations are tough for families in an economy like this, but a 2-3 day getaway packed with fun is possible, only a short drive away from everyday life.
Kids in the game room, families playing water volleyball in the swimming pool, everybody trekking through the woods with GPS in hand on a Geocaching hunt — there is no end to the fun a Maine family adventure vacation offers. Throw in half-price Kennebec River rafting or float trips and everyone is cooled off as well as relaxed.
In honor of adventurous families, we have gathered our great family getaway activities into one list (TADA!) to make planning Maine adventure vacations with kids easier. Yes, we really are that good. The fact that many of us have kids and love to watch their faces as they experience new things lets us help visitors with their planning. We encourage everyone to bring the kids or the grand kids and come out to play.
