A Guide to Things to Do in Maine in November
Before we get started, we’d like to share some information about the weather in Maine in November. This will help you plan and pack appropriately for your upcoming vacation. Maine gets quite chilly in November, with average temperatures in the 40s during the day and 20s at night. That means you should pack plenty of warm clothing and dress in layers while you’re here. It’s also a good idea to bring a pair of warm gloves and a knit hat, especially if you expect to spend extended periods of time outside.
Did you know that the Boothbay Region Land Trust encompasses 26 nature preserves and over 35 miles of hiking trails? They are open year-round with free access to the public. So, consider wearing those warm clothes you brought along with you and going for a scenic stroll through nature.
You also have the option of staying in your warm car while admiring the local scenery. Feel free to fuel up the car, turn the heat on, and go for a drive along the coastline. We highly recommend heading to Ocean Point, where you can see Lighthouses in the distance on the water. Check it out during sunset for some additional beauty!
Late fall is also a spectacular time to simply relax or cozy up with your significant other for a romantic evening in comfortable accommodations. Consider picking up a bottle of your favorite wine and spending some quality time together or catching up on your favorite book.
