The Ladies Adventure Club is an all-ages, all-abilities group for like-minded Maine women who want more adventure in their lives, from day hikes and meditation to archery lessons and full moon snowshoeing.
The MissFits of Maine meet Fridays for a walk/run in Kennebunk. And they also hike mountains and go ziplining. They paddleboard and kayak, ride bikes, ice skate - and there's likely to be wine afterward.
The weekly dances, which alternate Wednesday and Friday nights, include a half-hour beginner lesson at the beginning, followed by a couple of hours of open dance.
Getting outside onto the road, trail, or water is a life-enhancing experience on its own. But it's also way more fun when you're with other people who also love to hike, paddle, run, and ride. Check out these Facebook groups and Meetups to meet people who like doing what you like doing!

Getting outside has tremendous benefits for the parents of brand-new babies, whose daily routines are often centered on feedings, changings and oh-so-blessed nap times. There's the fresh air, the body moving, the interacting with other adults. Getting outside just feels good.
It's as informal as informal can be - just show up in comfortable clothes and you'll be welcomed with open volleyball arms.
You know those days when you go out with friends and do something engaging and fun - like a group hike or a friendly game of tennis - and then after that you do ANOTHER really fun thing, like cross-country skiing, yoga, kayaking or, wow, horseback riding? Maine Yoga Adventures is like that.
