5 BEST Things to Do This Summer in Maine 

Search for  Wilderness Relic

Head to Elephant Mountain in Northwest Piscataquis to find the remains of a B52 crash site in Maine — a memorial of debris spread throughout the woods from the 1963 crash. 

Explore the Desert of Maine

Tourists have been flocking to the Desert of Maine for more than 100 years. The glacial sand-covered spaces are quirky and curious. The campsites and cabins have been redesigned and expanded here, while a new venue is ready for summer performances. 

Take a Lobster Tour

Lucky Catch Cruises departs from Portland Maine and brings a soup-to-nuts experience of how to bring in the best lobsters. The lesson is great, but the lobstermen’s stories really make these tours special because they have generations of experience and sea stories. 

Find a Summer Festival

The Maine Lobster Festival is the apex of event season, and it runs for five days in Rockland. Arts, entertainment, lobster bakes, and the famous Great Crate Race — where competitors run across lobster crates on the water — are just a sample of things to do during this time-honored tradition. 

Fly Over Maine

Tours of Maine by plane are a great way to see more places in less time. You also get a unique perspective and easy access to some islands if you don’t want to deal with the ferry lines. Scenic Flights of Acadia cover Downeast and beyond. That’s not to be confused with Acadian Seaplanes, which offers flights through Rangeley Lakes with a stop at a lakeside lodge for dinner.
