    Never been to Maine. I would like to. Closest I got in the US was Massachusetts and I was coming in from Albany, NY and heading straight for Boston so no chance of getting near Maine, but I would like to combine a visit to Maine with a trip to the Maritimes in Canada. The coastline would be great, I think Maine has a coastal national park. That would be great.

    if you come to Maine, you HAVE to visit Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth

    then there is Arcadia National park

    I would love to. My wife, she's Québécoise, keeps telling me we need (she's been there but wants me to go) to tour the Maritimes and to head south to Maine.

    Acadia is beautiful of course.

    Should have seen the icestorm that we had in '98 here on the mid coast region.

    It shut down civilization's services for a week or more, depending on how far in the woods you lived.


    I live a mere block of US Route 1 in the villiage and my electicity was off for one week and three hours. No heat no light no nothing but a gas oven.

    brrrr!

    That's the one that shut most of Eastern Canada down, BTW.

    Good idea starting this thread, perhaps we can have one for each state. I live in NY and it gets glorious around this time of year.

    I'd love to visit Maine. When is it a good time of year to visit? I don't want it to be too cold. My husband and I are history buffs -- bunch of geeky folks visiting museums and historical sites :) I've been way north up to Quebec City, but we took a plane so we didn't make any other stops. Quebec City is another place that is quite picturesque.

    If sheer beauty is your goal, right now is the time to visit coastal Maine, because right now is the time when the leaves are showing off their glorious colors.

    If comfort is your goal, then July is the time here. 50 degree nights and 80 degree days.

    If mud is your thing then Spring is the time to visit Maine.

    If you hate yourself, (or you like winter sports) then winter a great time to visit Vacationland.
