Things to Do

There’s so much to do in Maine – outdoors or indoors – all year round.

Maine is known world-wide for its stunning natural beauty from the rocky coastline to the pristine lakes to the majestic mountains.  If you are an active person who loves the outdoors, you will find plenty to do here – any time of the year – including hiking, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, and whitewater rafting.

You’ll also enjoy a diverse array of cultural activities in Maine’s cities and towns. The state is home several to symphony orchestras, opera and theater companies, museums, and galleries. Our auditoriums and outdoor concert venues welcome many top national music acts.
