MDF and the University of Maine School of Economics are pleased to present The High Seasonality of Tourism in Maine. The report uses data on Maine’s taxable lodging sales to examine the seasonal nature of tourism in Maine, which plays a vital role in the state’s economy. Over half of Maine’s tourist activity occurs over the summer months, with considerably less occurring during the “shoulder season” of May, September, and October. The report also looks at the contributions of various regions to overall tourist activity in Maine.

This is the seventh in our series of reports exploring the indicators in Measures of Growth, the Maine Economic Growth Council’s reliable and trusted annual report on the critical factors in Maine’s economy.
