Introduction

Maine is the largest state in New England and great outdoors destination. The main draw card is the spectacular coastline around the largest and liveliest city, Portland, in the south-east, and the resort towns of the Kennebunks, which feature galleries, boutiques, wide, sandy beaches, pretty harbours, lively arts and entertainment and wonderful period architecture.

Further north and Penobscot Bay is filled with yachts and windjammers, while Acadia National Park is Maine's coastal highlight. Inland, around Bethel and Sugarloaf, you'll find world-class skiing, hiking and boating opportunities among the mountain vistas and wooded landscapes filled historic villages, covered bridges and generations-old family farms.
