Lighthouses and lobster. Nothing screams Maine more than these two quintessential New England traditions.
Maine is beautiful all year round and with more national parks and quaint villages than you can shake a stick at, you will never be at a loss for things to do.
For the outdoor junkies, the spectacular mountains are perfect for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer and the beautiful national parks are perfect for satisfying your inner photographer. You may even see a moose!
If tanning on the beach is more your style, you can do that too and if that is just a little too tame for you than why not try white water rafting down Sunday River.
Portland, the state's capital, is a spot not to be missed especially if food is your forte. Portland has a vibrant culinary history and even has a Foodie Tour - a 2-3 hour walking tour of the city centred around food. What could be better?
And what good meal isn't made great by a complimentary wine? Why not take a trip on a 74' Sailboat through Casco Bay taking an indulgent wine class against the backdrop of some of Maine's 65 lighthouses.
If retail therapy sounds right up your street than be sure to check out Freeport - a town almost completely dedicated to shopping and outlet stores! Sounds amazing, right? Plus, if you are a dog-lover then you are in even more luck - Freeport is totally dog-friendly. Why not take a load off after a heavy duty shopping spree in one of the town's waterfront restaurants with a traditional Maine lobster roll and more adorable puppies than you can bark at.
Sound good? That's because it is. If you want to find out more, go check it out for yourself, you won't regret it.
