With its cool, clean lakes, untouched beaches, and beautiful weather, summer in Maine is paradise—whether you enjoy freshly caught lobster or whitewater rafting. The state boasts some of the east coast’s best beaches for surfing, and summer is a great time to get in the water and learn. Golfers will find beautiful courses across the state, many of which take advantage of Maine's natural beauty by sending golfers up and down mountainsides, along the coast, and far enough into the woods that the only sound is your own swing. The lakes region in central Maine is the perfect spot for a week-long family vacation: Rent a private cabin and motorboat to fully enjoy what the lakes have to offer.
