Fall foliage-- in Maine

October in Maine is best described as the foliage capital of the USA. In fact, smartertravel.com ranks Maine as the #1 must visit state when it comes to leaf-peeping. Late September thru October is considered peak season for color change in the state of Maine. The beauty of fall foliage is it’s everywhere you look. Long drives and endless traffic aren’t necessary to enjoy this activity.

And if the foliage alone isn’t enough to excite you, throw in some lighthouses and scenic oceanside landscapes and you have a picturesque setting matched by no other, truly a dreamy backdrop for many well-known, world renowned artists’.

The month of October is also a very popular time of year for Maine festivals. Two of the most prominent festivals in the seacoast region: York’s Harvest Fest (October 19&20) and OgunquitFest (October 26&27) fall in the month of October. Food vendors, crafts, carriage rides and live bands are only a few of the many activities to be held at these wonderful festivals.

The Mariner Resort is conveniently located in the heart of the foliage, as well as the festivals. Be sure to come stay with us and enjoy all of the colors, crafts, music and festivals that are happening this time of year.
