My Favorite Maine Spots
The Maine Coast: no matter what spot in particular you are visiting, the rugged coastline is a year-round treasure. The incredible views of the water and waves crashing are a sight to see. We used to picnic at the in Kennebunkport during Easter and the memories will last forever.
Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary: Located on Montello Street in Lewiston, this may not be on any big lists of "must-sees" in Maine but it's surely on mine. You can enjoy a picturesque hike, listen to the birdsong, and explore the grand old stone fireplace at this beginner hike's summit.
These are just a couple tastes of my wonders of Maine and places you might find me frequenting with my family. Whether you are searching for adventure or just relaxation, Maine has something for everyone, all year round.
