Best Guys’ Weekend Trips in Maine
When it is time to reconnect with your best buds and have some fun, it’s time to head to Maine. Spend your days making new memories and nights remembering old ones. Maybe you’re all gathered around a campfire; perhaps you’re in your new favorite pub. Wherever you are, one weekend in Maine is all it takes.
Portland is a favorite city to head to for a mini-vacation. This little city has a lot to offer. Check out favorite bands and artists at the Thompson’s Point summer concert series at an outdoor pavilion, or grab a taco and catch the sunset from the rooftop bar at Bayside Bowl. Stay in luxurious hotels in the heart of the Old Port, a stone’s throw from world-class dining.
Bar Harbor draws those seeking to explore Acadia National Park but provides activities far beyond the park gates. Kebo Valley Club is an 18-hole golf course with breathtaking views nestled into the mountains, and Frenchman’s Bay is perfect for sailing.
In Maine, with its 3,500 miles of coastline, more than 6,000 lakes, and over 30,000 miles of rivers and streams, having fun on the water isn’t the issue — deciding what to do is. From fishing to paddling in the seas and lakes to sailing and boating, your guys’ trip will be full of fresh air and water.
The woods are also where you can find ATV adventures! There are more than 6,000 miles of ATV trails throughout the state. If winter sounds like a better time to head to Maine, don’t miss out on the 14,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails!
Epic Ideas for Your Next Guys’ Weekend
Learn how to rock climb above the waves by Acadia National Park or near Camden to take your skills to more challenging heights. Winter in Maine doesn’t mean we stop climbing — we just climb on ice. Learn how to scale frozen waterfalls with your friends.
Book a Maine Huts hiking or biking trip in warmer weather, or snowshoeing or Nordic skiing trip in the winter! This unique trail system connects soft beds and hearty, family-style meals from hut to hut from June through October. Off-seasons are self-service, so all you need to bring is food to prepare in the kitchen.
Other Things To Do
Bond together over the campfire on a guys’ camping trip. You can rough it a bit with tent camping or a lot with a backpacking trip (100 Mile Wilderness anyone?) or stay cozy in an RV. If you want to experience all the joys of outdoor recreation but still have delicious meals prepared for you and a comfortable bed, consider a trip to a Maine Sporting Camp or Lodge. They offer different packages, like fly-fishing trips or fat-tire biking excursions.
Give your friends the adventure of a lifetime on a whitewater rafting trip. Maine has class III-V rapids, so you can choose your thrill level.
Maine offers something for everyone looking for a transformative guys’ trip.
