Best Time to Visit in Maine
The best time to visit Maine is right now! The weather on the coast tends to stay mild thanks to the Atlantic Ocean, which keeps summers cool and winters bearable. Maine’s inland regions have warmer summer months (though the average temperature stays below 90 degrees) and colder, snowier winters. This creates the perfect environment for wintertime fun, with plenty of opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing! Here is our list of the best places to stay in Kennebunkport
Don’t forget about the incredible fall foliage during Maine’s autumn months. Visitors come from all over the country to leaf peep during September and October. Take a drive on a two-lane country road and admire the beauty of Maine’s quaint inland and coastal towns. You can take photographs, stroll through the woods, and enjoy a beautiful fall experience.
