A rainy day vacation is still a vacation!

Of course we wish the most beautiful days for your vacation, and we have been having amazing weather so far this summer, but as we all know, we can’t control the weather. My motto is “Never let the rain dampen your vacation, just remember you aren’t at home!” because you could be at home cleaning or doing laundry, or at work answering phones, and compiling reports, but you’re not, and don’t let unruly weather ruin your vacation, it’s nothing anyone can control, just make sure you know what to do when the bad weather affects your trip. Here are a few ideas of things you can do if it does rain on your vacation.

Go shopping! It’s probably one of the top 2 best things to do in rainy weather. You could go to the Outlet malls in Kittery (about 20 - 25 mins. south), or take a drive up to South Portland, and go to the Maine Mall (about 45 – 55 mins. north). You can never go wrong with shopping on a rainy day!

Go to a movie or play. This is may be the most popular choice among rainy day activities. See an off Broadway show at the Ogunquit Playhouse, Hackmatack Playhouse, Arundel Barn Playhouse, or the Booth Theater. What could brighten up a cloudy day more than an upbeat song and dance! Wells Five Star Cinema offers the latest films, a popular rainy day choice, or even just a great place to escape the heat!

Visit a museum there’s several to choose from, in Portland there is The Children’s Museum or the Portland Museum of Art. Here in Ogunquit/Wells there is: Ogunquit Museum of American Art, Wells Auto Museum, among others.

We are also only about an hour and a half from Boston, take the Amtrak Downeaster and spend the day in the city, visit the Boston Museum of Science, or the New England Aquarium. There is always something to do!

There are several activities that can busy up a rainy summer day, so don’t let it bad weather day ruin your vacation, if none of these ideas suite you, stay here at the resort and relax with a movie, we have DVD players in the office for $1 a day, and popcorn for sale in the office also.
