If you're looking to take a trip this summer and have chosen Maine you're one smart person, because Maine is gorgeous, fun and relaxing. Even if you've moved to the area and are trying to get to know Maine, this should be helpful to you.
In Maine, nature welcomes you. As you walk through one of the many less populated areas, you'll notice the branches leaning into trails to meet you, and the fresh air sweeping through your lungs. But there is more to Maine than just beautiful outdoor treats for the senses. Indoor activities are just as great because people in Maine are very friendly in general, especially in spots meant for tourists, and old, small towns. Small pubs in Maine are a great place to make new friends, while experiencing foods, beers and wines that are very welcoming to your taste buds.
I've lived here most of my life. I was born and raised here, and moved away for a few years, returning as soon as I possibly could and never plan on leaving again. Maine is great!
