As anyone who has ever been to Maine will tell you, it is hands down the best place in the world. Whether you’re driving up the coast on your annual trip to Bar Harbor or you love heading into Portland for a night on the town, there’s nowhere quite like Maine.

What Makes Maine So Special?

Coastal Communities

There’s something about life in one of Maine’s many coastal communities that just can’t be matched by any other place in the world. Maybe it’s the beautiful breeze coming in off of the ocean or perhaps it’s the fact that everything is lush and green, but when you’re in a coastal town, all of life’s problems just seem to float away.

Whether you’re visiting one of the many local shops or you’re just taking a stroll through a coastal town, there’s a level of relaxation that accompanies it that you can’t find in other coastal communities in different states.

Incredible Food

Everyone has a favorite restaurant to get a lobster roll at, but the truth is that with so many amazing options, it’s hard to go wrong! Do you like your lobster roll with butter or mayo (or both)? Do you prefer the lobster hot or cold? A little bit of lettuce or a lot? No matter your preference, there are countless places to get an amazing lobster roll in Maine.

And that’s only one of the many amazing foods that are available in Maine. From seafood to burgers, even the food is better in Maine!

Friendly People

Whether you live here or you’re visiting, one thing is shockingly apparent when you’re in Maine — the people are just nicer here! From servers at restaurants to people you meet on the street, everyone in Maine is incredibly friendly.
