Maine Seaside Adventure Adventure Trip - Beatrice Bradley

MAINE SEASIDE ADVENTURE

May 16 – 20, 2022

Join our group as we journey into the beauty of our 39th state. The origin of the name Maine is unclear. One theory is it was named after the French province of Maine.  Another is that it derives from a practical nautical term, “the main” or “Main Land”, “Meyne” or “Mainland”, which served to distinguish the bulk of the state from its numerous islands.  Maine is the northernmost state in New England and the largest, accounting for almost half of the region’s entire land area.  You will be experiencing unique boutiques and shops, farm and sea-to-table eats and charming Main Street communities to Portland’s historic neighborhoods and seeing some iconic Maine lighthouses!
