Windjammer cruises are the amazing adventure at sea that you’ve been waiting for

If sailing on a tall ship has been on your bucket list, it’s time to mark it “accomplished.” A cruise aboard one of the nine magnificent ships in the Maine Windjammer Association is the adventure you’ve been waiting for. Enjoy comfortable cabins, Down East home cooking and extraordinary views as you sail past picturesque islands and lighthouses and into quiet coves to explore charming fishing villages. Shipboard activities include everything from helping to raise the sails to sitting back and listening to stories and folk music at night under a starry sky. There are special cruises for everything from yoga, wildlife and kayaking to wine tasting, art and photography. Affordable rates are all-inclusive, and the meals (featuring an on-shore lobster bake) are truly exceptional.

Memories are yours to be made at this exhilarating two-in-one amusement park

Make some memories at Funtown Splashtown USA, with 50 rides, water slides and pools. It’s like two amazing parks in one location. At Funtown, there are roller coasters, rides that spin and twirl, a ride inside a dome with music and a laser show, turbo drops and racing and bumper cars. Over at Splashtown, you can zip through crazy tunnels and zoom down giant slides on mats and rafts or splash around in pools. Both parks have plenty for little tykes, from the carousel to wading pools. There are game arcades, a store where you can “prospect” for gemstones, private cabanas for rent and plenty of places to eat, from fruit smoothies at the tiki bar to burgers and salads at the Parthenon Cafe. A family owned and operated business, Funtown Splashtown puts guest safety first. Please review our health safety guidelines prior to your visit.

Enjoy whitewater rafting through the wild rivers of Maine

Think you have to be an expert to have fun at Crab Apple Whitewater? Think again. Since 1983, Crab Apple has been providing comfortable environments for memorable rafting adventures for people of all ages and all levels of experience. Challenge the Class III-IV rapids on the Kennebec and Dead rivers or let a guide take you and the family through the big waves with time for floating and swimming and marveling at the breathtaking scenery. Stay overnight at the base lodge with a pub, restaurant and pool (and play some evening paintball at one of several custom courses) or come for the day, enjoying a post-rapids cookout. Want something wilder? Try a moose safari, May through August.
