If lobster or other fresh seafood strikes your fancy, Maine is the place to get it. Those searching for a wilderness escape, rustic cabins, and cool walks along the ocean will find them all in this New England State.

  • Looking to get away? Maine has tons of wilderness, particularly in the Great North Woods, and is one of the most sparsely populated states in country.
  • Drive the coastline and explore the many small towns and over 60 lighthouses that dot it.
  • Year-round Maine lobster at an affordable price - late July/early August sees the Maine Lobster Festival.
  • Explore the coastal landscape of Maine in Acadia National Park.
  • Hike and check out the pristine, crystal clear lakes and mountains of western Maine.
  • If you happen to get tired of the wilderness and lack of people, head to Portland, Maine's largest city.
