It is a unique time of year in Maine – it is still technically winter and there is a bit more time to enjoy classic winter fun like snowshoeing, ice skating at Waterhouse Center, a horse-drawn sleigh ride at Rockin’ Horse Stables in Kennebunkport, and more! You can squeeze in a bit more winter fun before things begin to thaw. Before you know it, spring will be here!
With springtime just around the corner, you can enjoy the last few weeks of cozy wintertime in New England while planning for the fun that spring will bring! Check out the hottest upcoming events, happening soon near our Kennebunkport inn. Any one of these great activities would be the perfect addition to any spring break getaway.
