01 Nov 10 New England Vacations Offer Year Round Adventure For Everyone
Unlike some areas of the world where the word vacation is attached to a specific time of year, New England is a region of adventures for all seasons.
Here in Maine, winter means alpine, nordic and back country skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, dog sledding, ski jouring, and of course riding on Maine snowmobile trails. It’s a season of first tracks, swishing edges, kicked-up sprays of snow and hot chocolate in front of fireplaces.
Spring offers bright sunny days filled with the sound of rushing water for Maine whitewater rafting, the first festivals of the year, hiking, triathlons and bird watching. Waterfalls begin to flow free with all the spring runnoff. This is when everyone breaks out the bicycles and motorcycles for fun in the early sun.
Summer is getting out from coast to mountains, exploring lakes and rivers through kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and Kennebec River rafting, hiking long trails, boating on the lakes and ocean, beach combing, cycling, berry picking, geocaching, golfing and ATVing. Don’t forget the moose spotting! Summer in Maine is fun in endless ways.
Come fall, leaf looking is in season, whether from horseback or from a raft, along a lonely mountain trail or a winding back road. Dead River Rafting comes to a close with what are usually the biggest releases of the season, and fairs are everywhere this time of year — especially popular are the ones offering up the large bounty of Maine’s harvest.
New England vacations have something for everyone all year round. It’s one more thing to love about living here.
