About Maine

The most northerly state in the continental US, Maine is one of its most exciting and rewarding playgrounds, with everything going for it in terms of rugged coastline, unspoiled wilderness interior and a lively culture ranging from millionaires’ playground enclaves like Kennebunkport to arty bohemian cities like Portland. And the best places to stay in Maine reflect this diversity too with options ranging from great value inns to unbridled luxury.

What not to miss:

  • Of course nobody who ever mentions Maine ever fails to mention the lobster, and the clams, which are just part of an overflowing natural larder that brings drooling foodies from all over the US.
  • There’s so much to see and do here in this land of wide open, sparsely populated spaces. Whether you’re up for a hearty adventure kayaking, cycling, hiking in the endless forests and mountains, exploring the picturesque waterways, or enjoying the beach life with a glass of locally-brewed beer in hand.
