From roadside chutes to backcountry cascades, tiny slides to dramatic plunges, here’s where to find our favorite falls.
by Adrienne Perron and Brian Kevin

Wet, Hot Lakeside Summer

Pontoon flotillas! Dance parties! Disco-themed booze cruises! The little town of Naples is one big party all season long — and nowhere else in Maine is quite like it.
by Jaed Coffin

Blasts from the Past

Restaurants come and restaurants go, but these time-tested diners, lodges, lobster shacks, and more only get better with age.


North by East

The high-tech equipment that aids LifeFlight of Maine, the end of the Maine Sea Goddess’s reign, and an Aroostook-reared poet with home on the brain. Plus, in Maine Dispatches, L.L.Bean goes dark on social.

Food and Drink

Gifford’s Ice Cream recovers from a factory fire, Trudy Bird’s Ølbar brings Scandinavia to North Yarmouth, and Veazie’s Korean Dad hosts a buffet of global pop-ups.

Good Things from Maine

A unique South Portland welding school blazes a path for those underrepresented in the trades. Also, a roundup of Maine-made skin-care and a visit with the volunteer knitters of the Loose Ends Project

Maine Homes

Orono gardeners go big on hostas, determined cottagers go off-grid in Harpswell, and a Brunswick inn launches an innkeeper essay contest
