Most people think of summer when they think of the beach, but fall is a fabulous time to get away to Kennebunk. The colors in the landscape are inspiring, and there’s still plenty of great weather left to enjoy! On Wednesday, we’ll be on the beach in the morning to see the lunar eclipse at 6:55 am.
With our lively harvest festivals, sparkling clear weather, and brilliant display of foliage, fall is a wonderful time to visit Maine. Our vivid maples and oaks create a dramatic backdrop, whether you want to hike the North Woods, take a bike ride around Peaks Island, or play golf at one of the state’s many country clubs.
Fall also brings food and wine celebrations like the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest & Regatta, the Acadia Oktoberfest and the Great Maine Apple Day in Unity. The Cumberland County Fair and the Fryeburg Fair are a few of Maine’s many fall agricultural fairs.
Colorful farmers’ markets and produce stands brim with pumpkins and gourds. Apple orchards and pumpkin patches invite you to “pick your own.” Birders can spy migrating hawks, warblers and shorebirds. Fall is also the peak season for Maine lobster.
