Memorial Day Weekend Outings

"You have the brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."  Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go

The holiday weekend is just around the corner, have you decided where to go?  We have a few ideas for you just minutes from Portland!

Hermit Island

Needless to say we love this place and have confirmed that they have plenty of spaces available over the Memorial Day Weekend. Just 65 minutes from Portland, it feels like a world away. The mostly undisturbed island has wildlife, quiet trails, and hidden beach areas to explore and enjoy. The weekend also features pre-summer pricing on their sites ($43/night).


Wolfe's Neck Oceanfront Camping

Situated on over 600 acres of preserved coastal landscape in Freeport, Maine, Wolfe’s Neck Center uses its setting to connect people of all ages to the food they eat and where it comes from. Encompassing a demonstration farm, award-winning oceanfront campground, wooded trails, and historic buildings, our vibrant campus serves as a unique hub for education and exploration. This is a great place to take the kids...just in case you need to sneak back home! They have 11 sites still available for the holiday weekend.


Bradbury Mountain State Park

Bradbury Mountain State Park is a wonderful place to spend a day or afternoon exploring trails, taking in the magnificent view from the summit, or enjoying a picnic under a canopy of trees. Situated on Route 9 about halfway between Portland and Lewiston-Auburn, the park attracts visitors who enjoy picnicking, hiking and camping on its 800 acres of forested land. Bring your bikes, this park has some terrific trails for all abilities!
