A True Sauna Experience
Rochester is just a 40-mile drive from Portland, and it is home to the Richmond Sauna Bed and Breakfast. There are six communal saunas on the premises. There is a private sauna that you can request if you are not comfortable with a communal one.
Vinalhaven Island is a great place to go for a quiet getaway. There is plenty to do on the island, including kayaking, fishing, and sight-seeing. The island is still used by lobster companies, so many of the beachfront rental homes have lobster traps right outside. There is a loop bicycle route through the center of the island if you like biking, along with about a dozen hiking trails.
Did you know that Maine produces 85% of the world’s wild blueberries? Because of this, there are countless small blueberry festivals held around the state each year. Pay a visit to one of them to taste some of the best blueberry and blueberry-related products you’ve ever tasted. The most popular one is probably the Machias Festival.
Maine Has a Desert
