Nestled up in the northeastern-most corner of the country, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, New Hampshire and our Canadian neighbors, Maine is beloved for its beautiful coastline, crowd-free beaches, lighthouses, New England charm, maritime heritage and friendly communities. (OK, we get that was just a long—and somehow not even exhaustive—list. But the Pine Tree State has a lot going for it.) There’s also the majesty of Acadia National Park and Mount Katahdin, the fabled endpoint of the Appalachian Trail. The food? Fresh seafood is a delicious trademark of Maine.
At this point, you probably have a hankering for lobster rolls, secluded coves, thick forests where moose roam and enchanting small towns. Scroll on to satisfy your cravings for all the above in a way that’s pure Maine magic.
