Daytrip, "Hole In The Wall"

Looking for something "Artsy" to do in the Lakes Region? Try stopping into the "Hole In The Wall" gallery at 1544 Roosevelt Trail, in Raymond. Just down the road from it's larger neighbor, the "Cry Of The Loon" it holds a great selection of Maine & American handmade crafts, regional flat art & sculpture in its two rooms and sculpture garden.
The monthly openings can be pretty crowded as you can see from these pictures, but lots of fun.
It's a forty five minute drive from downtown Portland on Rte 302, on the left. Open daily in the summer & fall it scales back it's hours in the winter months.

Another fun thing to do a little farther up the road is to take a ride on the "Songo River Queen II", a replica of an 1800s Mississippi paddle wheel riverboat which operates on Long Lake, Brandy Pond and the Songo River. It docks on the causeway in Naples, where you can find a bite to eat.
