Experience Maine

Maine features great environmental and social diversity from the cosmopolitan cities and beach resorts in the south to the vast forests and rural communities in the north.  Eastern Maine is referred to as “Down East” because the area is downwind from the rest of the east coast on the prevailing westerly breezes.

Did you know Portland was considered the “foodiest small town in America” by Bon Appétit magazine? Or that internationally known classical artists visit Blue Hill to train every summer at Kneisel Hall? Or that the state has the largest bear population in the lower 48?

Maine is home to some of the best skiing in the East, the finest sailing waters this side of the Mediterranean, world-renowned parks, two of America’s best art museums, internationally known shopping areas, award-winning restaurants, dozens of National Historic Landmarks, extraordinary beaches, nationally ranked golf courses, and much more.

Come and see for yourself all that Maine has to offer. Maine is filled with surprises!
