October is the best time to visit Maine because the coastal wilderness vibrantly transforms and the summer crowds have returned home. Not only is Southport, Maine, a colorful wonderland during autumn’s peak, but you’ll also be just a short drive from dozens of fall family activities. Newagen Seaside Inn rests on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, overlooking a chain of picturesque islands in Cape Newagen. Our guests have exclusive access to nature trails, bicycle lanes, and cape rowboats. Grab the kids and hop into the car for an afternoon filled with leaf peeping, sightseeing, row boating, and many other outdoor activities.
Cape Newagen Alpaca Farm
Not only is the Cape Newagen Alpaca Farm a five-minute walk from Newagen Seaside Inn, but it’s one of the best fall family activities in Southport, Maine. Spend an hour with a large family of affectionate alpacas while exploring a quintessential Newagen farm. Learn how to stitch alpaca rugs, enroll in a workshop, or embark on a one-hour Alpaca Trek. Each child, ages seven and up, can walk, feed, and snuggle a young alpaca while admiring the natural beauty of Midcoast Maine.
Hay-Val Charters offers lighthouse, island, and river charters in the Boothbay Harbor area. If your family loves history, then you have to embark on a 4.5-hour lighthouse tour along Maine’s coast. During your half-day sailing adventure, you’ll witness three of the most popular lighthouses in New England: Pemaquid Point, Burnt Island, and Seguin Island. You can also choose between two island and river tours to witness seals, colorful forestry, drawbridges, and historic forts. Personalized charters remain the best option at Hay-Val. You and your family can visit any coastal attraction imaginable. Simply call 1-207-633-2039 to start piecing together a one-of-a-kind sea adventure!
Atlantic Ocean Row Boating
Take the kids out onto the Atlantic Ocean for a peaceful row boating voyage around Cape Newagen. We highly encourage our guests to utilize these dockside rowboats. Explore the boundaries of nearby Cape Island, Hunting Island, and The Ark. You’ll even be able to see Cuckolds Lighthouse from the cape.
If you’re looking for more fall family activities, try whale watching, fishing, or a scenic fall drive on Maine’s coast.
