  • Maine Weather is SO beautiful in the summer! It is always between 75 and 80! SO nice out right now!!!!

    Definitely a great place to visit in the summer! I guess that's way it's called "VACATIONLAND"!! There are beautiful mountains, lakes, ocean views, light houses, B&Bs, historical sites, beaches, etc! Plus great whale watching, hiking, water-rafting, skiing, camping ... not to mention the seafood is amazing!

    I've lived here my whole life and enjoy it's beauty every day ... I suggest it to anyone looking for a great vacation!

  • I've never been there but it sure looks like a nice place to visit.  Send away for a guidebook here.

  • Acadia National Park is nice as is Bar Harbor in the summer. Very beautiful there, my sis lives in Bangor.

  • go to the maine dept. of tourism. They will usually send you all the info you need and can tell you what special events are going on at the time of your visit. I have never been to Maine but I hear it is a beautiful state.

  • Even if you go in July or August bring warm clothes. It can be chilly up there even in the summer. BUG SPRAY is a must. Make sure you have tons of space on your memory card because you'll want to take a million pictures. Bring a passport in case you want to pop up into Canada (since you'll be so close anyway).
