Beat the heat with these indoor tourist town attractions

Written by: Mary Ruoff

Maine’s summer weather is often idyllic, but we do get hot and humid spells, even on the coast and in the mountains. When temperatures soar, folks just want to get into the air-conditioning, or at least break up outdoor activities with indoor time. To help beat the heat, we’ve compiled a list of indoor attractions – museums and theaters, even an aquarium – in popular tourist towns, most of them best known for spectacular scenery and accessible outdoor recreation. With one small exception, our selections are great for rainy days, too – or whatever the weather.
