Maine Vacations

SEE AUTUMN'S SHOW, WINTER'S SNOW

For every season there's a compelling reason to plan a Maine vacation. During the spring and summer, Mother Nature opens its doors with 70-degree temperatures and countless opportunities to play and explore. Visitors flock to Old Orchard Beach and its 7-mile stretch of sand, where carefree days in the water give way to entertaining nights along the pier. Other summer vacationers head to Maine's celebrated golf courses, explore a scenic mountain trail, or set sail on a whale-watching expedition.

Autumn brings an entirely different kind of experience. With the crisp fall air comes a Technicolor display of fiery reds and bright yellows from just about any vantage point: a mountain pass, an apple orchard, a trout-filled stream. But Maine's true beauty can be seen when winter sets in. Besides the incredibly long list of ski slopes to visit, outdoor enthusiasts enjoy tubing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Christmas lights outline historic lighthouses during the holidays for an added charm.

Of course, anytime is a great time to visit Maine if you're planning a culinary vacation. When nominees were announced for the James Beard award for the Best Chef in the Northeast in 2007, no other state had more representatives than Maine.

And no matter when you stay, you'll always have a delightful selection of Endless Vacation Rentals accommodations to choose from, each equipped to ensure your stay feels truly like a home away from home.

Eat...

Plan your own chef's tour. From Portland's Sam Hayward (Fore Street Restaurant) and Rob Evans (Hugo's) to Rockland's Melissa Kelly (Primo), this state has an embarrassment of award-winning culinary talent.

Stroll the farmers markets. If you're the type who believes that much of the joy of a well-cooked meal comes from preparing it yourself, hit up one of Maine's many markets (more than 60 at last count) for fresh fruit, vegetables, and so much more.

Stop at a lobster shack. Enjoy a casual meal, starring fresh Maine lobster, in a beautiful seaside setting. Red potatoes and corn-on-the-cob complete what may be your favorite Maine vacation experience.

Play...

Old Orchard Beach. The low surf makes this 7-mile stretch of sand great for families to swim and relax. Other family-style entertainment includes a boardwalk, arcades, amusement rides and a nearly 500-foot-long pier.
