Spring time in Maine – Ski, Bike, Boat, Beach?!

Boothbay Harbor, MaineSpring time in Maine equals flowers growing and snow guns blowing … yup, its confusing. There’s skiing at Sunday River and Sugarloaf ski resorts, and both ski areas will keep spinning lifts through May 1 to accommodate spring skiers and spring ski events like Reggaefest and Ski Maynia – free skiing at Sunday River May 1.

Meanwhile on the southern Maine coast, spring brings beach Maine Skiingwalks, biking, and launching boats for the season. Gardens in Kennebunkport are blossoming and the best restaurants from Kittery to Portland to Camden are opening their ocean view decks from drinks and waterfront dining for the season.

Carriage Road, AcadiaWhether you prefer cold or warm weather sports, spring is a time to get outdoors and active, especially if you packed on a few pounds hibernating in January and February.

Spring is a great time to escape to Maine and get a great deal on lodging and dining in seaside towns like Kennebunkport, Ogunquit and Wells Beach Maine. Bring a jacket, and a t-shirt – you never know for #shore what the Maine weather will bring in spring.

Bring your golf clubs too if you want to hit the greens at Maine’s golf courses. April and May in Maine are tricky  for packing, but rewarding and diverse, anything goes –  bike, ski, walk the Maine beaches, or get your boat ready for Maine boating season…but be sure to Visit Maine.

Spring in Maine – ski, bike, boat, beach!

Southern Maine coastSpring in Maine means many things to many people. For some its the best part of a pretty fantastic ski season – ski resorts Sugarloaf, Sundy River, and Saddleback stay open into early May with phenomenal snow conditions.

Carriage Road, AcadiaSpring is also a time to get outdoors and active, in the event you packed on a few pounds hibernating in January and February. As the roads are clearing, and snow banks are melting, road bikes and Maine cyclists are appearing. Trail riding and mountain biking would be premature, read: muddy,  still until the grounds thaws and dries out from the winter’s snow pack.

As tree blossoms bud, and the grass turns green, Maine becomes refreshed and beautiful. Spring is also a great time to escape to Maine and get a great deal on lodging and dining in seaside towns like Kennebunkport, Ogunquit and Wells Beach Maine.

Boothbay Harbor, MainePlan a spring getaway to the southern Maine Coast, Kennebunk has a wonderful Farmer’s Market every Saturday, Maine’s best waterfront restaurants are open with decks and patios – just bring a jacket. You can hit the greens at Maine’s golf courses, too – even though they may not be perfectly green yet. It’s a confusing time of year, anything goes –  bike, ski, walk the Maine beaches, or get your boat ready for Maine boating season…but be sure to Visit Maine.
