If vacationing ever had parameters, they’ve certainly come unhinged. With remote work on the rise and commutes consisting of a coffee pot-to-couch shuffle, a change of scenery is way in order. Luckily, whether you’re taking a vacation, staycation, or workcation, we’ve got you covered with our A-list roundup of Maine’s most stylish getaways.

At Newagen Seaside Inn in Southport, guests need not venture far for fine fare and fun. With ample preplanned activities like lobster bakes, weekly live music at The Pub, and fireside tales and s’mores, the property’s lush 20-acre grounds are continuously lively yet relaxing. Guests seeking independent activities may check out a rowboat or classic cruiser bicycle, while visitors craving a slower agenda can consider a dip in the saltwater pool overlooking the sea or a game of candlepin bowling in the Pine Room.

Harbor Theater presented two highly successful outdoor film events on Thursday and Friday  as a thank you to the community for its patience and support  while we are closed due to COVID-19. Saturday was a perfect moonlit night at Newagen Seaside Inn, and almost 100 people (state limit due to COVID-19) distanced themselves on the lawn on blankets or in chairs to watch E.T. on the big screen.  Many, many families with children of all ages spread out across the lawn to watch the popular film. It was great to see them enjoying a special event that could be done outside, safely and securely, despite the pandemic.

Harbor Theater is bringing you a three-day outdoor movie extravaganza with a giant pop-up screen, live music, food and drink (including popcorn and candy), and films for all ages on Thursday, Aug. 27, Friday, Aug. 28 and Saturday, Aug. 29; gates open at 6:30 p.m. All three events will be free and open to the public; first come, first served. This is our way to thank the community for its patience and support while the theater is closed due to COVID-19.

Friday, Aug. 28, is “E.T. the Extraterrestrial” (1982) at Newagen Seaside Inn. E.T. is that ‘squashy little guy,’ the least threatening alien to ever hit a movie screen, who is found and hidden by a young boy determined to find a way to send him home. A classic for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood for adults.
