5 things
to do
in Southern Maine

  • Shop Outdoor Outfitters mega-store, Cabela’s in Scarborough Maine

This retail mainstay stocks a massive inventory of fishing, hunting and camping supplies in addition to all the gear you’d ever need for your boat, RV, ATV, and that getaway Maine log cabin you’re hoping to discover on the market for a good price. Not too far from the Maine Mall, Cabela’s is located at 100 Cabela’s Blvd, Scarborough, Maine 04074.

  • Hike the scenic trails of the white mountains just across the Maine border, near North Conway, New Hampshire

This is an adventure for the whole family. The white mountains are home to scenic water falls, vibrant leaf-landscapes along Route 302 and Route 112 (the famous Kancamagus Highway), and many majestic big game wildlife – including the American Black Bear and the legendary Moose. Slide along granite bedrock smoothed by centuries of refreshing river waters. Sit under or behind a small waterfall as you steal a kiss from your date, creating a lifelong magical memory amongst the great New England landscape. When your legs are tired, drive down to the tax free outlet shopping center of the Settlers Green Outlet Village in North Conway. Order a hot home-style comfort meal, and top off desert with an ice-cream sundae.

  • Visit Fun Town – Splash Town USA, and the Aquaboggin Water Fun Park in Saco, Maine.

You’ve taken your family to southern Maine for a great outdoor adventure. They’ve gone hiking, hunting, fishing, canoeing & kayaking, and may have even toasted some marshmallows at a campfire. But… maybe they’re getting a little tired of the outdoors, and they’re craving a little more civilization and social interaction. It’s time to give them their day in Maine’s biggest amusement parks. With rides, games, waterslides and more, your family is sure to have a great time. Enjoy some classic carnival style food along with good dining choices in the area. When they’re done playing hard, they’ll be ready for a few more days of nature’s serenity under the trees and lakeside campsite you had spent so much time finding when you booked your Maine vacation.

  • Mini-Golfing, Go-Cart races and more at Sea Coast Fun Park in Windham, Maine.

Are you staying in the Casco, Naples, Raymond, or Bridgton areas, and don’t want to go too far for a day for fun with the kids? Check out Windham, Maine’s Sea Coast Fun Park. Located right along the major throughway of Route 302 in Windham, Maine, Sea Coast Fun Park was originally a go cart only location. Now it offers year round activities, which include adventure mini golfing, giant hill slides, a 100 foot tall sky swing, and a cool, refreshing splash pad known as Shipwreck Cove (complete with kiddie water slides). If you’re on a family vacation with a child aged 3 to 12, and he or she is going to have a birthday during your stay, Sea Coast Fun Park is a great family friendly place to celebrate.

  • Strike it rich at the casino!

Oddly located in the woods of Oxford, Maine, the Oxford Casino and Hotel has been expanding ever since it opened years ago. Enjoy both new and classic slots, as well as the exciting rush of table games in this clean, friendly, and eager to please establishment. If you’re there on a work trip, learning new and exciting things at a seminar at the casino’s Event Center, there’s nothing like booking a half-day or whole day on the lake with Charles McGee of Bucks Bass and Beyond in the middle, or at the end of your stay at the Oxford Casino and Hotel. Catch a big win at the roulette table, and top that high with a giant bass on Sebago Lake before you head back home.
