Make Your Autumn Awesome With A Visit To Maine’s Little Known Pumpkin Park

It’s the best time of year! Nope, not Christmas just yet. It’s autumn in New England and that means warm apple cider, apple cider donuts, and lots of coziness. There’s just something a little more special about enjoying fall in Maine compared to any other place in the US. It could be that we’ve got the best fall foliage. Or, it could be that we have so many wonderful, family-run pumpkin farms in Maine. This one might not be on your radar, but you’ve got to check it out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
