Like the rest of the world, Maine businesses are navigating the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to check websites for your destinations before visiting for the latest health and safety guidelines in place, and please remember to be patient and kind while visiting.
There’s something about Maine that makes you want to take a piece of it home with you. Several pieces, most likely. You’ll know it when you see it.
Find a unique memento to commemorate your visit, or the perfect gift for someone else. It might be a trinket you buy at a boutique store, a few blocks from the harbor. Where you laughed with the shopkeeper, heard her story and the story of her shop.
Or it might be an antique sale inside an old barn in the countryside, where you learned the story of the local ceramics created from the rich clay of Maine, and the stories of old sea captains who came into town to barter their goods from overseas.
You can always take home something more practical—a jacket to keep warm while skiing, a hand-hewn board for surfing the waves, even a wallet or bag made from recycled sailcloth. It’ll be both useful and a reminder of how much fun you had exploring Maine.
