Maine, the northeastern-most state in the U.S., is known for its rocky coastline, long maritime history and abundant parks and reserves, including the famed granite and spruce islands of Acadia National Park. Moose are plentiful in Baxter State Park, which encompasses towering Mt. Katahdin, endpoint of the Appalachian Trail. Deep, wide Lake Sebago and other Lakes Region waters are popular for fishing and boating.
In the Maine Beaches Region along the southern Maine coast, you’ll find classic New England beach communities and thirty dazzling miles of white sand. Lighthouses dot the shore, their beacons of light beckoning visitors to come explore all the region has to offer, from excellent family resorts to authentic lobster shacks.
