Maine is beautiful every month of the year, but it month has its own special flavor! September is a glorious month. County fairs and festivals dot the landscape. Food is everywhere! From amazing American and Ethnic Cuisine restaurants, to tiny beach-side snack bars , to grange hall suppers, and the best seafood on this side of heaven. The leaves are starting to turn and it won’t be long before the whole state offers a spectacular drive-through foliage display. The evenings are starting to cool down, some early mornings can be foggy, but the days are sunny and warm (unless it rains of course!)
Things to do in September!
