fall foliage
In the spirit of short lists, here are 10 things you can do in Maine every year in October:
  1. Take a foliage drive. Start as you cross the bridge in Kittery and continue on up Rt 1 until you get to Canada! Foliage drives are best during the first 3 weeks of Oct.
  2. Celebrate the bounty of Maine at Harvest on the Harbor. (Portland- Oct 21, 22, 23, 2010)
  3. Run (or cheer) the Maine Marathon. (Portland- Oct 3, 2010)
  4. Bike, walk, run (or cheer) the Dempsey Challenge. (Lewiston/Auburn- Oct 2-3, 2010)
  5. Shop at a Farmers Market. Gorgeous produce, craft items, soaps, specialty foods and more.
  6. Eat the last of the lobsters at any of the great lobster shacks along the coast. (Most close in Oct until next year.)
  7. Attend a fair- Cumberland County, Fryeburg and more local agricultural fairs
