Located at the tip of the northeast of the United States, Maine is known for its seafood, especially lobster, whale watching, and lighthouses along the coast. Visitors to Maine hotels can stay in deeply forested areas, or on the rocky cliffs overlooking the Atlantic seaboard or the outlying islands. The forested hills of Maine are known for spectacular views, creative communities and outdoor adventures, and hotels in the mountains provide a home in paradise for lovers of winter sports. Along the coastline, lobster is the food of choice, and outdoor sports such as hiking and biking are the main activities.
Visitors to hotels in Maine come for both art and nature. The spectacular sea-views of Portland and the equally impressive mountains to the west provide a backdrop for outdoor activities. Along the coastline, cities such as Portland sit near small villages perched on the cliffs. Romantic getaways can be found at Maine hotels like the Kennebunkport Inn on the coast, and the Grand Summit Resort Sunday River provides close proximity to cozy firesides and outdoor sports like skiing. From a base in Portland, Maine hotels visitors can cruise on a lobster boat for a couple hours and then return to a lobster dinner. Otherwise, they can stay on shore and ride on the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad or check out the Portland Museum of Art. The Maine Mountains and Highlands have their share of museums and art galleries as well, so there's no lack of cultural activities for the visitor who doesn't want to fly down a snowy slope. Likewise, take a car down one of four nationally acclaimed "Scenic Byway" roads through the hills and mountains or along the coast. Of these, the Schoodic National Scenic Byway is the least developed, through an unspoiled area of the Maine Coast.
Maine Quick Picks and Tips
Convention facilities are available in most of the larger hotels in Maine, and there are many smaller conventions held throughout the state on a regular basis. Science fiction and Anime conventions are held regularly in Portland.
DiningMaine is known for lobster, but also for wild blueberries. Visitors should stop at a traditional Maine lobster shack such as Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster in South Freeport.
Major Point of Interest
If there's one thing a visitor should see in Maine, it's Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. There are tide pools and a rugged coastline with 57 miles of roads to explore by foot, horse, bicycle or snow-shoe.
Enjoy the lively shopping on cobblestone streets in the Old Port district of Portland, but if you want the outlet mall experience, wander to Freeport, Maine for discounts on just about everything.
Most Maine sports are individual: hiking, bicycling and so on, but many of the local colleges also have teams, as the NCAA Division I Maine Black Bears from the University of Maine. There are also two Portland professional minor league teams: the Portland Pirates hockey team and the Portland Sea Dogs baseball team.
