Places to Go
There are almost too many places to visit in Maine; it'd be impossible to experience it all in one trip. Where are the best places to go in Maine? What makes the best Maine vacations? How about seeing the sun rise before everyone else in the country. Or visit Aroostook County and discover why the "Million Dollar View" is one of most glorious Maine destinations. It's also home to the most northeastern city in America, Caribou.
Maine tourism regions are plentiful. The highlands of Bangor, Katahdin and Moosehead Lake are just some of the best places to visit in Maine for parks and other natural sights. Baxter State Park for instance is a massive 200,000 acres in size, and home to Mount Katahdin, or "mountain of the people of Maine", the highest point in the state. Where to go in Maine? Mount Katahdin is the place to start if you want to hop on the Appalachian Trail, because this is where the hiking journey begins, or finishes.
Vacation spots are abundant, especially around the Greater Portland and Casco Bay area. Portland is one of the best places to go in Maine if you're into culture, nightlife and exquisite shopping boutiques. There's no wonder the people of Maine call it "New England's best kept secret".
