Maine, known for its rugged coastline and sandy beaches. The Pine Tree state is a vacationland of spectacular seascapes, lighthouses, and lobster fishing villages along the expansive coast plus whitewater rivers, lakes and mountains inland.
Maine is also a prime shopping destination with name-brand factory outlets and legendary outfitters.
Picturesque seaside villages dot the coastline with countless bays, harbors and islands. New England's only national park, Acadia, located on Mount Desert Island is as unique as it is awe-inspiring - including Cadillac Mountain where the earliest sunrise on the East Coast appears.
Portland, Maine's largest city, has a cosmopolitan flair, while cherishing an incredible seagoing history. The restored Old Port is home to excellent restaurants, colorful pubs, and delightful boutiques. Portland's downtown offers classic theatre, symphony and a world-renowned collection of architecture, art and literature.
Moving away from the coast, Maine is about seasonal wilderness, fresh water lakes and mountains await your adventure, be it fishing, biking, hiking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, skiing or snowmobiling.
