Explore all 35,385 square miles of Maine — from mountains to sea, from potato fields to city streets — in pursuit of the best Maine summer ever. There are three ways you can win our Great Maine Scavenger Hunt.

#1

Do any combination of activities that happens to interest you on the linked website. Pick a bunch of places and pursuits that sound fun — be sure to include a few you’ve never tried before — then hit the road and enjoy! You’re out having a fun Maine summer, and that, my friend, makes you a winner! You don’t get any prizes, of course, but can you believe some people are stuck trying to enjoy themselves in other states?

#2

Finish all of the tasks in a single category. So you’re a foodie, an outdoorsperson, or a history buff? Complete all of the activities in any one of the seven categories that follow (Outdoors, Food & Drink, History, Arts, Events, Family, and Landmarks), and you’ll win a handsome matted print of the cover of our special Summer 2017 issue, along with a photo and shout-out in a forthcoming issue of Down East, in which we’ll salute all summer scavenger hunters.

How to show us you’ve really completed these undertakings? Each entry includes an explanation of a corresponding selfie request. Grab your phone and shoot a picture of yourself as the entry describes. Then, when you’ve taken a selfie for each and every activity in the category, use the form on this page (coming soon!) to upload your images (all at once, as a batch).

We will confirm with all winners within two weeks of receiving your selfies. Complete all of the activities in more than one category (but fewer than all seven) and we will admire you that much more, although the prize is the same.

#3

Complete all 40 fun, eye-opening, challenging, delicious, adventuresome items on this list. Wow. We honestly have our doubts about whether anyone can even do this. But if you head out and complete all 40 of these activities — across all seven categories — and upload 40 corresponding selfies, matching each task’s selfie description you will have won our undying admiration. And truly enjoyed the best Maine summer ever.

Here’s what else you’ll win: 1) a 10-year subscription to Down East, 2) a matted souvenir photomosaic of your 40 selfies, 3) an open invitation to visit the editorial offices of Down East in Rockport, where an identical photomosaic of your achievement will hang in a place of highest honor for one year. Upon such visit(s) you will be fêted and hailed as a conquering hero.

Meet The Author
Maria received degrees in both business and psychology and had worked as both a travel professional and a real estate agent when she realized that she could combine both of her passions — travel and residential real estate and design. Managing vacation rental properties since 2003, she has spent countless hours obsessively networking with other vacation rental professionals. Her love for residential architecture and beautiful landscapes has led Maria to collect houses around the globe, including one purchased sight unseen on the Bay of Fundy in Canada. She’s also been lucky to live in some really cool locales – an 18th century carriage house on Beacon Hill in Boston, a medieval castle in Europe, several resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, and a historic Spanish-eclectic Pacific view home in southern California. Maria currently divides her time between an artsy farmhouse in Machiasport, Maine, a quintessential cape house on Cape Cod and a beach cottage in tiny Phinney Cove, Nova Scotia. Oh, and her, oh-so-chaotic, home life consists of a musician hubby, two teenagers, four cats, two dogs and a diaper-wearing house-chicken.
