Putting the Joy in Portland's Disc Golf Scene - Maine BrewGuide

On a balmy evening in early spring, Mainers emerge from their dens and flock toward their favorite local breweries to quench their thirst for outdoor patio life. At Rising Tide Brewing Company, one of Portland’s more popular spots, the air is filled with notes of sun-soaked laughter, clinking glasses overflowing with IPAs, and something else—the reverberating sounds of discs hitting chains. Though much of this crowd consists of regulars, there is someone new in town: The JoySwich Putting League.

Cultivating Culture: Supporting Maine's Farmers Through Agritourism - Activities Guide of Maine

It’s no secret that Maine provides ample opportunities for both tourists and locals to explore and embrace its resources. The state’s craft beer industry has exploded into near worldwide acclaim over the last decade. The foodie movement has transformed the restaurant and social scene, especially in places like Portland. And, of course, we have the beautiful natural environment to make any city-slicker pause in awe. Another particular natural environment has been trending lately for both tourists and locals alike, and it is not the mountains or the rocky coast. Instead, it’s a space that makes great beer and food possible to fuel such an industry—farms.

For tourists and Maine urbanites alike, agritourism is a way to get back to the land, learn how food is grown, and support local farms.

If you like scavenger hunts, identifying animal tracks might be the perfect winter activity for you! The snow is inevitable in Maine in the winter, so let’s embrace it. A fresh snow fall can provide a blank canvas for animal tracks, turning your backyard into a paw-print treasure hunt. Recognizing animal tracks is a creative way to get kids (and adults!) to be excited about spending time outdoors in the winter. You can even combine your animal tracking with winter walking, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing for an exciting adventure!
