After a long, cold winter stuck inside, we’re all itching to get outside and dig in the garden or jump on a bike and ride. Call it cabin fever or spring fever, it all boils down to needing or wanting a change of scenery.
When that mood strikes, we’ve got the perfect antidote. Head for the coast of Maine for a spring break at the Berry Manor Inn. During April, May, and early June Rockland comes alive with activity indoors and out. It’s simply a treat to be in mid-coast Maine in spring. And to prove it, we’ll let you in on our favorite ways to chase away the winter blues.
Take a Lighthouse Tour
Our iconic Maine lighthouses speak to the adventurer in all of us. Perched along rocky cliffs above the mighty Atlantic Ocean, these beacons of light are a welcomed sight for weary sailors. Every lighthouse features a unique design and signal indicating its location for navigation guidance. Grab your camera and venture out to capture an Instagram-worthy photo of the lighthouses located in mid-coast Maine.
Go Museum Hopping
Known as the “arts capital of Maine” Rockland is home to dozens of independent galleries and world-renowned museums. The Wyeth’s may have put the Farnsworth Art Museum on the map, but within its walls lay an impressive collection of many American artists and Maine-inspired artwork. Located right downtown, the Farnsworth is just a hop, skip, and jump from the Center for Contemporary Art for those with a taste for more modern art.
Take a Walking Tour
If you really want to get to know an area, put on your sneakers and take a walk. Walking tours have become one of the newest trends in sightseeing, and Rockland is not lacking in that arena. Photo tours, culinary outings, history, mystery, and folklore treks designed to enhance your knowledge and appreciation are among the many ways you can experience our area.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Shopping may not be on everyone’s wish list when planning a spring getaway. But, shopping in Rockland and Camden Maine can be a richly rewarding experience. Fun, funky, whimsical, and exceptional variety define the shopping culture of mid-coast Maine. Vintage clothing, hand-crafted items, and one-of-a-kind gifts keep company with chocolatiers and epicurean delights. So if you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, you’re in the right spot.
Cycle the Mid-Coast
Bring your bike or rent one locally and pedal your way through some of mid-coast Maine’s spectacular scenery. There are literally dozens of routes to choose from when traveling on two wheels. Fields and forests, moors and mountains, or just a gentle ride along the rocky coastline are but a few of the choices for bike routes here. In the words of John F. Kennedy, “nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.”
