Some say the full moon makes people go mad. But that big dome light of the night is brightest when it's full, which makes it really nice to hike under (or in the case of winter, ski or snowshoe under).
Rent a bike for a few hours or the day and cruise Portland Trails, see the lighthouses, head up to Mackworth Island, or go wherever else you'd like.
These active summer getaways and retreats will take you to some of Maine's most stunning locations - in the woods, along the coast, and on the water - and you'll get there via bike, boat, kayak and foot.
Folks who don't typically shapeshift with the appearance of the full moon will appreciate the uphill trek to Mt. Abram's peak, where music and mountain revelry await.
Winter Trails Day is national effort to encourage folks like us to get outside by offering free intro to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing lessons and rentals. And it's coming up on January 9.
By now, you're likely familiar with the idea. It's yoga - the downward dogs and planks and twists and triangles you're perhaps already familiar with - except instead of a mat, there's a paddleboard under you.
These yoga sails fill up fast, and for good reason. It's yoga. On a sailboat!
The meetup is geared toward experienced paddleboarders who'd maybe like to expand their paddling horizons (you know, make new paddling friends, explore more of Casco Bay, brainstorm all the ways to combine paddleboarding with other sports - like paddleboard polo!).
Plenty of scenic stops along the way to follow trails, sit at the beach or walk the breakwater in Camp Ellis. There are several general stores along the way to stop for more water or an ice cream sandwich and you'll get to cruise through all the activity in OOB (Hey! Stop in a buy a T-shirt).
