What if someone told you there?s a desert in Maine? What if that same person tells you it?s not just a desert but a glacial desert at that?
It may sound preposterous, but it?s definitely true. At the Desert of Maine, there are a lot of activities to enjoy for the whole family. There are ongoing thirty-minute tours offered throughout the day to let visitors in to the magic nature worked to create a glacial desert in Freeport, ME.
You can also enjoy walking tours or narrated coach tours. If you?re in the mood to explore the park on your own, you can do so by following any of the marked nature trails, visit gigantic sand dunes, or enjoy a meal at the picnicking area.
Are you interested in indoor attractions? Be sure to drop by then at the museum, which is housed in an 18th century barn. You?ll be delighted with the museum?s fantastic assembly farm tools, impressive collection of sands from all over the world, and its gallery of sand paintings. If you?re in the mood for making artworks of your own, the Desert of Maine also offers sand designing activities.
