Sunny, summer days are here and before we know it the crisp, fall weather will be sneaking in. There are still plenty of summer weekends left to take some day trips in Massachusetts. Check out these awesome places you can cross off your bucket list!

There’s a lot to love about Maine in the summer time. If you haven’t spent a weekend visiting Maine’s islands you should make plans before summer is over! Maine’s islands include Peaks Island, Little Diamond Island, Great Diamond Island, Long Island, Chebeague Island and Cliff Island. Getting to the islands is a quick and enjoyable ferry-ride away. Our residents at Foreside Estates and Princeton on Back Cove love jumping on Casco Bay Lines for a ride.
Whether you are visiting for a day, staying for vacation, or enjoying one of their scenic or music cruises – Casco Bay Lines is your fun and safe connection to the islands of Maine! The regularly-scheduled ferry operates 365 days a year. There are also lots of fun specialty cruises including a sunset and moonlight run.
