What to Add to Your Packing List for Maine in the Spring

Dress in Layers

If you’re creating a packing list for Maine in spring, you should definitely include some lighter, summertime clothing. During the day, Maine can be quite pleasant. If the sun is out, you should feel comfortable throwing on a light T-shirt and some jeans or maybe even a summer dress. However, once the sun sets, the temperature starts to drop somewhat drastically at times. 

Although it is unusual, there is the occasional spring snowstorm in Maine. This is why packing layers is so important. A few days before your trip, you should definitely check the weather to ensure that no last-minute spring storms are headed this way. As long as the temperatures are mild (as they typically are), pack those warm-weather clothes, and add in some thicker pants and a few jackets for the evenings. 

Bring the Right Shoes

Shoes are an important part of packing for a trip. Depending on the type of vacation you’re taking, you may need to bring a variety of shoes. If you’re jetting off on a couple’s trip, it’s a smart idea to pack some fancy shoes. However, you should also have a comfortable pair of shoes that you don’t mind walking around in. Thankfully, there should not be much snow in Boothbay Harbor during the spring, so you won’t need to worry about lugging your heavy boots with you. 

Prepare for the Rain

It’s always smart to be prepared for rain during a trip. Although Boothbay Harbor is known for its beautiful weather, you should still come prepared. Add a rain jacket to your packing list for Maine in spring just in case those showers decide to make landfall in the middle of the day.
