Summer is in full swing, and that means it’s time to get out and explore. In many states, the summer months see spectacular special events and activities come to life, offering plenty of chances for people coast-to-coast to enjoy warm weather and long nights. For some, quiet beach days or hikes immersed in nature are enough to satisfy the urge to enjoy the season, but for others, opportunities are abound. To help you find exciting things to do and see this season, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite summer activities across the U.S.A!
#1. Maine Lobster Festival
In New England, nothing quite says summer like strapping on a translucent plastic bib and grabbing a pair of shell crackers to enjoy a few lobsters. The delicacy is worshipped everywhere from Rhode Island to New Hampshire, but no state is impacted by lobster so much as Maine. Held every August, the Maine Lobster Festival in the Midcoast town of Rockland brings thousands of visitors to its rocky shores to dine on lobster caught just yards away. The event obviously showcases spectacular lobster spreads, as well as a seafood cooking contest, a parade, and live entertainment. The event kicks off on August 2nd and runs through the 6th.
