Spring is technically upon us, but we are eagerly awaiting some green to show up! In the meantime we are enjoying these lovely shots from a staff daytrip to the Saco Heath Preserve in May.

It’s a well known fact that Maine is full of vintage treasure. Flea markets and antique shops are all over our great state, especially along the coastline. Head inland a bit to where the the orchards celebrate maple syrup Sunday in the spring and apple picking in the fall, and you will find a gem
If you’ve never visited Coast City Comics, you’re missing out on some old-school fun! We love ducking into this comic book store/arcade/“Funbox Monster Emporium” for a look around and a game (or three) of pinball.

Playdates with a gang of girly girls! Too much fun. Come visit Daytrip Jr. to see all this cuteness in person. Open 10am-6pm daily! Shop
Valentine’s Day is such a sweet moment for little ones. Remember that decorated card board mail box with a slot on top for little folded up valentines from grade school? We adore this time of year at Daytrip Jr. We get to pull out the bright reds, big hearts, shiny things & sparkles… we have just
The holiday season is such a busy time at Daytrip Society & Daytrip Jr.! Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude is our biggest event of the year and holiday shoppers abound.

Many farms and orchards across New England offer cross country skiing on their properties every winter. Once the snow falls, Harris Farm in Dayton, Maine is the perfect spot for this tradition.
