If you are a travel enthusiast, no need to get frustrated and prepare for a tough left hand turns as the experts of Maine tourism hope 2021’s banner tourism year to have an encore in the summer of 2022.


Many coastal tourist destinations claim that they have high summer bookings, as the Memorial Day Weekend comes close, with high amounts of spring foot traffic and tons of French queries. It’s a sign that the northern neighbours of Maine are back once again after two years of closed borders. Although the COVID-19 made 2020 a lethargic year, the tourism industry of Maine roared back in 2021 with tourists spending going up to $1.3 billion in the Pine Tree State than what they saw in 2019. This will not stop. Matt Lewis, the president of HospitalityMaine, a restaurant and hotel industry group, said that they hope that the 2022 summer will be very busy compared to last year. However, with the expected busy period that’s natural with the unofficial start of summer, seaside towns claim that they are still fighting with staffing issues, mainly in food and hospitality.


Tom Peaco, the CEO of the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce said that one of the principal worries is to find enough people to employ and maintain everything.


Rockland and Camden, well-known midcoast destinations have already started experiencing many tourists coming to the streets. Tom thinks that 2022 summer would have tourists just like last year.
