We can’t argue that most people love to come to Maine in the summer. After all, it can get pretty cold up here in winter and the Pine Tree State isn’t exactly toasty in spring or fall.
But you miss so much here in the Rockport area and throughout the whole state if you visit just in the summer.
Read below about why we feel Maine is beautiful year round.
Many Maine residents believe fall is the absolute best time of year to be here. The air is crisp. The leaves are turning gorgeous shades of yellow, orange and red. and….most of the tourists are gone.
Fall foliage in Maine is spectacular just about anywhere in the state, from the coves and waterways in and around Rockport, to the apple orchards farther inland (pick your own apples and have a glass of cider fresh from the press), to the forests surrounding our plentiful lakes and streams.
Visit Bar Harbor via Acadia Byway. Travel along this byway to and from Acadia National Park for some terrific fall foliage displays.
We can get a lot of snow here in Maine in the winter – that’s why the state practically shimmers! Come in the winter and go skiing or walk on some snowshoes. Ride along in a horse-drawn sleigh. Explore our state’s gorgeous backcountry on a snowmobile, or take it in on cross country skis.
