what to expect in march

I know March is not the perfect time to visit Maine, but you go when you can. What can we expect in March, what's open what's not? What's the weather like? Never been to Maine so any advice would be helpful.

Depends where in Maine you want to go in March. For the most part not much at all is open in March, except in Portland. The weather is still winter: cold and snowy.

You will be near Camden and Rockland, where plenty is open year round. There are many good restaurants and fun shops in both towns. This site will get you started:

There should still be skiing, tubing and maybe tobogganing down the chute at the Camden Snow Bowl:

You might get snow, you might get what we call "mud season". Last year spring came early; this year winter seems determined to stay.

This winter you will see lots and lots of snow. Please take some home with you. LOL

Check out the Portland Museum of Art. Double check , but it use to be free on Friday evenings.
