Follow the Maine Art Museum Trail

April 25th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

The Maine Art Museum TrailYou’ve heard of wine trails, cheese trails, brewery trails and – of course – hiking trails but how about an art museum trail? The Maine Art Museum Trail is 8 art museums, within 200 miles of each other, and containing over 73,000 works of art.

Maine and art are a natural fit, our beautiful state having inspired and played home to generations of artists: Frederic Edwin Church, Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Georgia O’Keeffe, Fitz Hugh Lane, Winslow Homer, and three generations of the Wyeth family. Thus it should come as no surprise that Maine plays host to a number of fine art museums.

The Maine Art Museum Trail details eight of the state’s leading art museums, all within a day’s scenic drive of each other, if not closer, from Bangor to Ogunquit.

Maine Maple Sugaring Time

March 21st, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Maine Maple Sugaring TimeIn Maine, as in much of the northeastern US, spring means more than just melting snows, green leaves, and warmer weather – it also means Maine Maple Sugaring Time!

Maple sugaring time is when the sap begins to run in the maple trees. Maple trees that have been tapped begin to drip their amazing sap into the buckets hung from those taps. The sap is collected by the sugarmakers and taken to a sugarhouse where it is carefully cooked down into pure and delicious, Maine maple syrup.

March 14th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Kennebunkport Festival 2015

New England’s official kick-off for summer, The Kennebunkport Festival, is scheduled for June 7th through the 13th, 2015 and is seven days of fine wine, food, and works of art on the coast of Maine.

Kennebunkport’s reputation for culture is famous far and wide – but it’s an accessible culture, one open to all, not just the select few. Some say it is partially because of this egalitarian attitude that Kennebunkport also knows how to throw a party, and the Kennebunkport Festival is just that: a big party of beautiful local art, drinks, live music, galas and grand tastings from top New England chefs at restaurants and homes throughout Kennebunk and Kennebunkport.
