If it weren’t for the harsh winters and chilly springs, Maine would be my favorite state in the U.S. I highly recommend a drive to explore coastal Maine, especially the DownEast Acadia region. There are several good facilities for hiking, sailing, and recreation.
There are several guidebooks to choose from for your trip to Maine, and the state’s information centers are great places to browse a wealth of brochures. My favorite information center is located in Yarmouth, a 15-minute drive on I-295 N from Portland. There are travel counselors to help you plan your Maine visit.
