Nothing insane, I thought, I’d go around a lake a few times. See what I could find for fun to do. Something that is really clue is canoes are available to rent, or take in different spots throughout the Northern woods.

Old Port is one of the fun-filled places in the state of Maine for city life. Not only does it have an amazing nightlife, a great array of restaurants, and some of the best bars in the state. But what is talked about less by the younger generation is the incredible scenery like the epic boardwalk that is on the outskirts of downtown South Portland.
A great beach in Southern Maine, Phippsburg, hosts one of the best most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean in our state.
Fishing is legal. And there is a smaller beach where the water is extremely shallow like a wade pool where the oceans current sucks in the water into a cove.
Very easy to moderate trail that is kids accessible. A few spots to swim, awesome scenery, and great for pictures.
Whitewater rafting is an electric way to spend a summer afternoon. Nobody does it better than Northern Maine.

Doubletop Mountain located in Piscataquis County, Maine, part of Baxter State Park is a hikers dream.
This is not for an amateur climbers idea of a fun time. The extremely high elevation of 3,498 Feet — Doubletop is all rough terrain — that gradually becomes more difficult as you climb. It is classified as a very strenuous trail that can only be finished by scaling huge boulders.
Once again, like Mt. Katahdin, watch out for windy conditions, and the brutal cold because the weather can change immediately. The other issue is that the two peaks are not very wide, as you see in the pictures below — creating a dangerous platform — with views that can compete with any other mountain in Maine.
Estimated time is about 6 hours to the top and back down with times varying depending on your speed.
