Maine

pfly

Tacked haphazardly on the easternmost part of the country, Maine sets a brilliant stage for nature to flaunt it’s showiest colors. With snowy peaks, rollicking rivers, lakes, woods and rugged coastlines, “The Great Outdoors” is something of an understatement. Skiing, hiking, fishing and kayaking are all top-notch. It almost seems a sin to sit down! Fresh seafood is a staple in Maine, with almost 90-percent of America’s lobsters caught here, so shellfish lovers should eat their fill, and then some. Get lost in the drama of local sea-lore by visiting one of the 60 lighthouses scattered across the coastline. Whether it’s apple-picking in Androscoggin County or fishing for brook trout in the Belgrade Lakes, Maine is the place to kick back, breathe deep and enjoy all that nature has to offer.
