5 Tips for Enjoying the Fall Foliage in Maine

Maine is world famous for its fall foliage. Nowhere is it more beautiful, stunningly scenic, and has a kaleidoscope of colors with perfect daytime temps and crisp cool evenings. There’s a myriad of reasons to come to Maine in the fall.

1. Bring Your Camera

In Maine’s lakes and mountains, hillsides glow with autumnal fiery colors amid the evergreens. You’ll want to capture the colors for Facebook and Instagram posts, for your friends back home, or to frame as a keepsake for yourself!

2. Get Out on the Water

A schooner or sailboat charter is splendid in fall — seeing the dramatic leaves on the shore from aboard a boat powered by the wind is magical. The wind tends to pick up in fall too, so you should have a mighty nice haul or reach (naughty terms for ye sailors).

3. Enjoy the Last Maine Lobster of the Season

Maine’s cuisine, with delicious fresh farm vegetables, fruit, and seafood, is the perfect accompaniment to a fall foliage trip. What could possibly taste better than clam chowder or a fresh steamed lobster and blueberry pie after a fall hike in Maine?

4. Pick the Perfect Maine Produce

Since fall is harvest season, you have the chance to pick apples and pumpkins at the state’s dozens of orchards and farms. You can take them home as a delicious treat or a reminder of your time in Maine. Mums are up for grabs too!

5. Enjoy a Nature Walk

Fall offers the perfect dry cool weather for a hike. While spring is often still damp on the trailheads, fall brings beautiful arid air and well-maintained trails in Maine’s mountains.
