Spring: The Best Time to Visit Boothbay Harbor

Despite the peaceful falling snow here at Linekin Bay Resort in Boothbay Harbor, we’re already counting the days until spring arrives (and you should, too). The average family starts planning a vacation at least 3-6 months in advance. The process usually begins with some area research and then booking overnight accommodations. We suggest that you start thinking about that upcoming spring trip to Midcoast Maine before prices on resorts, airfare, rental cars, and activities go up during our peak season. Most tourists believe that summer is the best time to visit Maine. But we’re here to tell you that springtime is actually the perfect season for a family getaway to Midcoast Maine – and here’s why.

Why Springtime?

While we cannot guarantee the weather will be perfect, the average temperatures in Midcoast Maine during springtime usually hover in the low 60s. After a long winter filled with freezing temperatures, snow plowing, and windshield scraping, 60 degrees will feel like 80 (depending on where you live). We recommend a spring getaway to Maine because it’s blooming with flora, cool, crisp days are just what you need after a long winter, and it tends to be less crowded. Springtime yields adventurous travelers looking to get out and about, enjoy restaurants and shops, while still enjoying all of your favorite summertime activities.  Spring is ideal for area hiking, sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and fishing.
