Cheap Dates: get a view of the changing leaves from a chairlift

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 9:15am

We're introducing a new series called Cheap Dates because the best memories come from creative ways to spend time together, right? So check it, here's a cheap date idea for you and a buddy or a honey all throughout October in Midcoast Maine.

The Camden Snow Bowl is hosting chairlift rides up the mountain every Sunday in October from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Seven bucks apiece for adults. (When we went it was only five-even better!) You cannot beat this for a deal, particularly when what you get is a spectacular view of the fall foliage from the top of Ragged Mountain, as well as a glimpse of the ocean. Ride up and ride down or hike down. Take a picnic. It's a gorgeous way to spend a couple of hours. And if you feel like it, post a photo on our Facebook page.
