Poll Description

Summer — peak season for Maine tourism and many other industries — arrives this year with the solstice on Thursday, June 20, at 4:51 p.m.

Some forecasts suggest the next three months will be strong ones for Maine's seasonal economy. But there are also closely divided opinions about the economic health of the country, as a recent Mainebiz poll found.

How that business uncertainty may play out this summer in Maine is unclear.

Whatever lies ahead, the stakes are high. One example: Last summer, visitors to Maine accounted for direct spending of $5.2 billion.
