One of my favorite activities for 8 months of the year is riding a dirt bike through the woods in northern New England. Being from southern Maine, I enjoy riding in my own surrounding towns, but I also enjoy loading up the bikes with buddies and heading out to places like Clough Park in New Hampshire.

Is there a better way to spend $200 than on a hot air balloon ride? I’ve considered this for a moment and the answer is no, no you can not. One can argue that $200 could be better spent on a motorized scooter, playoff tickets, a cheap pair of Gucci shoes, 800 gum balls; but all of these are in fact, not better than floating above the ground in a giant balloon.

I can almost bet that you have never seen a view quite like one from Mt. Agamenticus in Southern Maine. I’ve been on my fair share of hikes, and never have I seen a view of the ocean on any mountain summit in the New England.

Indian’s Last Leap, also casually called “the Leap” by Sanford-Springvale locals, is both a place for outdoor recreation and a story.  As a location, Indian’s last leap is a small cliff area along the Mousam River in Springvale, Maine near Springvale’s Recreational Area. As a story, however, according to some, has historical basis.

There is a reason why tourists don’t typically flock to Southern Maine during the Fall or Spring. If there’s no snow for winter sports, yet too cold to sun bathe at the beach, why go to Maine, right? Wrong!

There’s no better place to go sightseeing of Portland in southern Maine than the Portland Observatory. Built in 1807, The Portland Observatory is the last remaining maritime signal tower in the country. With a ‘lantern’ P&J Dolland Achromatic Refracting Telescope and flag signals, the observatory would provide communication between the shore and land a few hours before incoming ships reached the docks. The telescope had mysteriously disappeared back in 1939. Which can only mean one thing: magic! Or theft.

There’s something about ice fishing in Maine that has a greater appeal than any other kind of fishing out there. Of course, you may feel more comfortable sitting in a boat on the coast in midday; or reclining in an old boat relaxing in the sun patiently and unassumingly waiting for a nibble; or wading among your potential catches waist high in a river.  Ice fishing in southern Maine is unlike any other fishing you’ve experienced.

When contemplating the romantic get-away with your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, one doesn’t always consider escaping to southern Maine. But don’t be surprised to be contradicted by the splendor of southern Maine in the winter. Maine winters accommodate all types of love birds and their interests.

Before I divulge any ideas as a Maine insider, let me tell you a romantic story. A few years ago, a friend of mine was surprised with a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift right here in Maine. Before her boyfriend treated her out to dinner, he brought her to a secluded pond a few towns away in southern Maine. Hiding a thermos of hot chocolate and ice skates in his trunk, he surprised her with a day of ice skating. He had even shoveled the snow himself that morning.

If I could take a guess, I’d bet you’ve never never been dog sledding in Maine, or dog sledding period. If you’re anything like me, then you’re one of those people that like to brag about all the cool things you’ve done. What’s even better is doing something cool that none of your friends have ever done.

Skiing and snowboarding is  among the most popular winter activities in Maine. Tourists come from all over to visit our Maine mountains and ski resorts for their winter vacations. These alpine mountains are certainly a long drive, even for southern Maine residents, but not a deterrent if you’re planning a day of skiing/ snowboarding, or lodging at a nearby resort.
