Our Favorite Day Trips in Maine

Poland is a great jumping off point for a wide range of day trips in Maine. Explore the mountains, the coast and the big city with these fun ideas starting from the Wolf Cove Inn, a romantic lakeside bed and breakfast in the Maine Lakes Region. Rugged beauty abounds in all four seasons here in Maine. Each area, explored during a different time of year, offers a unique experience.


The Carrabassett Valley

North To The Carrabassett Valley

Take a scenic drive up to the Carrabassett Valley in the northwestern mountains of Maine. Then head over to Rangeley Lake region. You’ll explore two of Maine’s scenic byways on this trip. In addition, you’ll find many waterfalls along the way. Spring has the best waterfall activity due to the winter snow melt run off. It’s especially beautiful in September and October during foliage season. This scenic trip is about a 200 mile loop. Read more about this Scenic Maine Drive …

Day Trips in Maine

East To The Rugged Maine Mid-Coast

Spend the day exploring Camden, one of the most beautiful coastal towns in Maine. There are great shops and restaurants in Camden. Rather than dining in Camden, you can grab a lobster roll at the world famous Red’s Eats in Wiscasset on your way. Bring it for lunch on your hike to the top of Mt Battie for 360 degree views of Penobscot Bay, Mount Megunticook and Camden. Alternatively you can drive the Mount Battie Auto Road for those same views. This is easily one of our favorite day trips in Maine and is surely a “bucket list” item. If you still have energy and time on your way back, do some shopping at the outlets in Freeport, home to LL Bean. It’s about 180 miles round trip via the recommended US route 1. Read more about this Day Trip To Camden …

scenic drive in MaineGo West Young Man

Explore the small towns and mountain passes on this loop through the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Pass through Crawford Notch, Franconia Notch and the world famous Kancamagus Highway on this trip. This drive is beautiful year-round, but especially so during September and October foliage season. Doing the full loop is about 230 miles of driving. I highly recommend the full loop, but you can save 70 miles by not doing the Crawford Notch loop. Read more about this White Mountain Scenic Drive …

Maine Day Trips WaterfallsNorthwest To The Falls

There are some wonderful waterfalls to explore on this northwesterly loop through the scenic beauty of western Maine. This trip takes you through Norway, up into Grafton Notch and into Coos County. April is one of the best time to see roaring falls because of the mountain snow melt runoff. The partially or fully frozen waterfalls are wicked cool in the winter. This tour is 170 miles round trip. Read more about this Maine Waterfall Tour

Best Maine ShoppingSoutheast To Portland

There is so much to do in Portland, once named “America’s Foodiest Small Town”. You can explore the islands of Casco Bay. There’s also some great shopping in the Commercial Street area. Or you can catch your own dinner on a real working lobster boat. From the Wolf Cove Inn, it is about a one hour drive to downtown Portland. Read more about Portland Day Trips …
