JetBlue has announced a one-day sale, today Feb. 22, for hops from the Big Apple (JFK) to Portland (PWM). The $49 fare can be booked today only for flights March 1 through May 25. Think of the possibilities! Plan a visit for Maine Restaurant Week, and nibble your way through Portland, America’s foodiest small town. And one to take advantage of spring skiing at Sunday River, Saddleback, and Sugarloaf, the king of spring. And another to score early beach time on Kennebunk or Ogunquit Beach. Or why not plan an early-season visit to take advantage of the great birding at Acadia and in Downeast Maine? And, well, you get the idea.
Here’s the best part, can you say Deal: With the exception of those ski vacations, this period is off season in most of Maine, with some of the lowest rates of the year for lodging. Check around, you’ll find quite a few especially enticing packages at inns and bed-and-breakfasts.
