We will take several part or whole day trips during your stay. All of them have activities which are included, but there are times when you will have the choice of how to spend your time. That might mean going to a beach (for free) or going to an amusement park (at your own expense). Here are some of the areas we may visit and the things you might do. Of course, if we stop at a shop, or in a town, any shopping you do is at your expense, too.
Bring your hiking shoes for this nature lover's trip to the largest public park in Maine, the home of Mt. Katahdin.
You will have free time each weekday, and on weekends, you'll have even more time to explore in groups on your own. Here is a list of places that can be reached quickly by taxi (or on foot*).
