Not sure where to go for your upcoming spring break trip? Instead of going to the same-old spots, whether that is an overrun Floridian coastal destination that is always too hot and too busy or the ever-popular New York City with its exorbitant hotel prices, we have a better idea in mind.
Head to Maine, a beautiful and picturesque state that offers everything you could want during your spring break getaway in Maine. Not only does Maine have tons of outdoor activities, beautiful sights, breathtaking mountains, far-reaching forests, and flowing rivers, but there are dozens of interesting towns and cities that make it their ideal spot to go get a quick breakfast, have a nice sit-down lunch, or sip on some cocktails and pints of beer with your friends.
Let’s check out the top reasons to go to Maine during your holiday and why GetAway Vacations offers the best houses in the entire state!
Things to do in Maine
Some of the best areas in Maine include York, Wells, and Ogunquit. Let’s check out the top things to do in these natural areas!
Head to Nubble Lighthouse
Located right off of the coast of York, Maine, the Nubble Lighthouse is a picturesque lighthouse that offers fishing off its rocky coast and incredible views of the water and wildlife.
Relax on Long Sands Beach
After a day of exploring the Nubble Lighthouse, you can head to Long Sands Beach or relax, get a tan, play games with your kids, or read a book in the peaceful atmosphere. This family-friendly spot offers miles of coastline and tons of parking, making it easy for you to bring your favorite beach toys.
Hike Mount Agamenticus
Mount Agamenticus is one of the most popular hikes in the entire area due to the hundreds of miles of hiking and biking paths that intertwine through the forests, green pastures, and peaks. Plus, once you reach the top, you can marvel at the birds-eye view and the panoramic viewpoint of the land down below.
Head to the Wild Kingdom Zoo and Fun Park
If you are on vacation with your kids, one of the top things to do is go to the Wild Kingdom Zoo and Fun Park to challenge one another to a game of mini golf, ride all of the rides, brave your luck in the haunted house, and head to the petting zoo.
Take a tour through the Granite State Growler Tour
York is home to not one, but three breweries! And instead of having to go Uber or drive to each brewery, you can hop onto the Granite State Growler Tour to experience all three breweries in just one day.
Have a Tasty Breakfast
There are endless breakfast spots in this area of Maine along the coastline. Not only can you grab mouthwatering seafood due to its proximity to the water and the rivers, but you can rest assured that you will be able to order filling breakfast and brunch plates no matter where you go!
One of our favorites is Norma’s Restaurant, offering breakfast specials, pancakes, eggs, omelets, side orders, sandwiches, and much more! We recommend heading here and getting the Village Special, complete with two eggs of any style, bacon, ham, sausage, home fries, and your choice of tea or coffee. If you would rather have a sweet start to your day, try the chocolate chip pancakes with melted butter and maple syrup! You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu in this down-home diner spot.

Instead of booking an overpriced and small hotel room on the outskirts of a town, we have a better idea. Check out GetAway Vacations, the premier property management business in the state that has incredible homes in York, Wells, Ogunquit, and other locations.
