Visiting the Maine Coast for Memorial Day?May 8th, 2013
The long weekend for Memorial Day signals the official start of summer, and that means the official start of Tourist Season in Maine. If you’re planning a Memorial Day trip to Maine for the three day weekend, we have some recommendations for you and your family.
Maine’s communities celebrate Memorial Day with parades through towns and ceremonies in honor of their veterans and fallen soldiers. The local parade in Camden goes right by our Jaret and Cohn office! If you’re visiting for the weekend, join the community in their local traditions!
If the weather’s nice, take a trip to one of the local beaches for a picnic. Birch Point State Park in Owls Head, Maine and Laite Beach in Camden, Maine are great locations to enjoy a nice day at the beginning of summer!
Take a leisurely hike, walk, or drive up Mount Battie! Spectacular views of Camden Harbor are a must-see while you’re visiting the area. Edna St. Vincent Millay also wrote her famous poem, “Renascence,” about this view.
You’re in Maine… Why not celebrate Memorial Day with lobsters from a local fisherman instead of hot dogs and hamburgers? Lobsters, corn on the cob, and dinner rolls make for a much better dinner anyway!
