A-List

Après-Ski Burgers

After a long day on the mountain, a hearty meal is more than necessary. Nothing does the job better than a burger, and the Sugarloaf area has plenty of good ones.

Hikes in Western Maine

Although Mount Katahdin and the peaks within Acadia National Park get all the attention, the less-trafficked Mahoosuc Mountains and surrounding summits also offer challenging adventures and stunning views.

Libraries

Back-to-school season means it’s time to hit the books. With beautiful architecture and an array of interesting events, Maine’s many libraries offer room to learn and have fun.

Lakes for Boating

Maine may be known for its coastline, but the state is also home to more than 6,000 lakes. Explore the inland waters by boat and take in as much of the scenery as possible.

Waterfront Outdoor Eats

In these few sacred summer months in Maine, there’s no better way to enjoy a meal than outside in the sun. The dining experience is made even better when there’s a beautiful ocean view to take in.

Day Hikes

Maine might be known for its rocky coast, but its mountains also offer impressive vistas and plenty of opportunities for exploration. Fortunately not every hike the state has to offer is as intense as Katahdin.

Lighthouses

Maine and lighthouses go together like lobster and butter—you can’t have one without the other. Some of the maritime navigational towers are iconic landmarks, while others are steeped in intriguing nautical history.

General Stores

General stores represent the best of Maine’s hodgepodge of values, selling everything from hunting and fishing gear to hardware, fully loaded sandwiches, and farm-fresh produce, often in a no-frills setting.

Mocktails Around Maine

In the past, if you wanted to skip the alcohol while out, dinnertime options were limited to juice and soda. Now many restaurants serve creative, non-alcoholic concoctions that can compete with their boozier counterparts.
