Maine is the single largest producer of Lowbush Blueberries in the world, and that alone is reason enough to visit the state. Prime blueberry season, August through September, also happens to coincide exactly with the perfect time for a road trip to Maine. It is dry and cool and sunny, while the rest of the East Coast is humid, hot, and insufferable. I highly recommend a drive along the coast with many stop-offs at the roadside farm stands filled with blueberries. It’s the perfect way to end a long, sticky summer. I buy them by the bagful, and September becomes a month of blueberry muffins, blueberry waffles, and blueberry parfaits.
