Mid-July Peak Summer Season

It is mid-July here in the Maine Sebago Lakes region,  and it’s important to remember – especially for those of us blessed to live hear full time – that well within a one hour drive, the ocean and some of the finest mountains anywhere on earth, are right here. And in-between: you can enjoy dozens and dozens of lakes, ponds, and hiking or you can climb aboard the Amtrack Downeaster train in Portland for Boston, or north to stops in Freeport and Brunswick.. and soon beyond. Your love of trains can take you west to North Conway to the scenic ride station in the middle of downtown, and the cog railway to the highest point in the Northeast, up the west side of Mount Washington. If you prefer you can drive to the summit up the Mount Washington Auto Road to the summit, always a memorable experience. And while we are talking about driving, here is a worthwhile area tip to remember: if you can avoid driving west on Route 302 during the weekly peak: which happens Friday starting early to mid-afternoons into the early evening, you will be glad that you did, the northbound Maine Turnpike peak each week. Also avoiding traveling eastbound on route 302 mid-to-late afternoons Sunday’s is recommended, as is an early Sunday arrival onto the Maine Turnpike southbound. Enjoyment of what you want to do here in peak summer season is often about ‘the early bird getting the worm.’ Early arrivals are a must at lake beaches such as TassleTop in Raymond and Sebago Lake State Park in Naples if you are expecting a place to park or entrance at these and the many other beaches here in the region on the busiest days. And one last reminder for this peak summer 2018 season: everyone wants your summer fun to be without incidents so make sure that you and your family members wear sunscreen, drive safety, and do not let anyone drink and drive!
Make it a great week from all of us here at Maine Real Estate Choice!
