Prime golf season along the coast of Maine would be June through mid-October. How early in spring or how late in fall the season is extended will change every year depending on the weather.
Hiking is an outdoor activity that can be enjoyed year round in the area providing you have the right gear. During the winter and early spring seasons, trails will be wet and muddy and could have snow pack. Most of these areas are open for hiking year round.
Kayaking & Paddle Boarding
Kayaking and stand up paddle boarding activities are available mid-June generally through mid-September. The season might be stretched to start earlier or go later in the season depending on Mother Nature. Port Clyde Kayaks will probably start the earliest and go the latest as they do offer wet suits with their tours.
Biking & Bike Rentals
With the popularity of “fat tire” bikes for the snow pack, biking can now be considered a 4-season sport in mid-Coast Maine. One of the top rated century rides is in the area and featured annually in July with the “Lobster Ride ‘n Roll” bike event in Rockland. If you are planning a biking trip through Maine, Bed Breakfast and Biking lists bike-friendly B & B’s and inns along or near the bike trails and byways throughout the state.
Anytime of year, a rainy day or dreary day can be made better with a few strings of bowling. Oakland Park features candlepin bowling is a real “50s” location.
