Travel to Maine

Maine is the easternmost and northernmost state in the contiguous United States, and it’s known for its expansive forests, breathtaking coastlines, and its unique New England culture. So much of its territory is covered by trees that it’s nicknamed "the Pine Tree State." If you enjoy hiking or just taking a stroll in the woods, you’re in for a treat: 90% of Maine’s territory is covered in trees.

Acadia National Park, which is hugged by the Atlantic Ocean, is stunning, with scenic landscapes and wildlife such as bears, moose and whales. Acadia, and Maine in general, boast a multitude of hiking trails. On them, you might find blueberries. Maine is the largest producer of blueberries in the United States.

As a visitor in Maine, a typical day might include visiting the rocky coastline and its iconic lighthouses. Many small picture-worthy fishing villages are also waiting for you, for example, Winter Harbor, Lubec, or Stonington, which looks like a painting in reality.

The state’s economy is driven by forestry, fishing and tourism.

As a tourist in Maine, you should know that Augusta is the capital and Portland is the most populous city with just over 1.3 million people. Portland is known for its rich arts scene, and it was rated the number one food city in the U.S. by Bon Appetit.

If you go, be sure to order up some local delicacies like a lobster roll and a warm slice of blueberry pie for dessert. When in doubt, always talk to locals.
