by Jane Petrlik Smolik
Publisher: MidRun Press
Pages: 256
Binding: Perfect paperback
Size: 5.5" x 8.5"

Revised, expanded and updated, this local classic has become the definitive resource for families exploring the southern half of Maine with children of all ages.  It offers over 350 well-researched ideas for outings from Kittery to Camden as well as longer excursions.  Adventures for all four seasons are included. Locals as well as tourists will be delighted by this indispensable guide written by a Maine mother.  The author has included a table of contents as well as an index by attraction and an index by location.  So if readers find themselves in say, Boothbay Harbor or Ogunquit, they can flip to the back and find out what to do while in that town.  Very clever. Over 11 years ago, Jane Petrlik Smolik, set out to write the guidebook she wished she could find. Since then, this comprehensive resource has never been out of print. There is good reason this little gem is still going strong into its fourth edition.
     This lively read serves as a quick reference for visitors, guests, and renters as well as natives and makes a well-used addition to any family library.
