Maine's Desert

When you have exhausted all the beaches and outlet stores, and made your pilgrimage to L.L. Bean, take the family to a quieter, traditional attraction: the Desert of Maine.

Located close to Freeport, the Desert of Maine has been a favorite of New Englanders for generations.

As a child, I remember driving for three hours to visit the Desert of Maine, and not being disappointed.

We especially liked the camel.

The Desert of Maine is a natural phenomenon, a vast area of sand dunes, and colored sands.

A glacier deposited the sands long ago. You would never know that there was a desert inland in Maine, and the billboards you see now and then are quite enticing.

There is a museum, gift shop, nature trails, and camping areas. There is also a new butterfly room, which is a lot of fun to see.

Children love to make their own jar of colored sands, and the gift shop has a lot of interesting items too. It is incredible to see the kinds of designs that their sand designers can make. The sands come in a lot of different colors, and look very exotic for Maine.

The Desert of Maine is closed in the winter, but you can find out all about it at http://www.desertofmaine.com/.

Visiting the Desert of Maine is not only unexpected, it is a visit to an old-fashioned sort of tourist attraction, the kind we enjoyed when life was a little slower and pleasures were simpler. It's also nice to spend time in the outdoors with the family getting to know the plants and trees around this part of Maine. We loved hiking around the Desert of Maine. It was a real change from the crowded hot beaches.
