Best places to visit in Maine, the United States, for a holiday

Unlike the popular destinations, this state is a beauty on its own

The most northeastern state of America, Maine, is famous for its rocky coastline, landscape, marine life, and most importantly the laid-back atmosphere. And when travelling to Maine, the best thing one can binge on is the great availability of seafood, especially the best lobster. Owing to the magical landscape and rocky terrains, Maine is also home to beautiful National Parks. Here is a list of some of the best places to visit in Maine.

Acadia National Park

Located on Mount Desert Island, this national park is one of the most favoured parks in the country. The Acadia National Park is famous for its enduring beauty of the natural landscape, adventure points comprising hikes, and a sunrise point where millions gather to soak in the scene. Just a few miles drive away from Bar Harbor; the park is spread around 50,000 acres. A walk or hike in the national park is worth every sweat for the ultimate scenery and the most mesmerizing highest point on the North Atlantic Seaboard: Cadillac Mountain. One can also go hike on the Precipice Trail and Schoodic Point.

The Ogunquit Beach

Located in Ogunquit, this is a three-mile long beach offering beachgoers every possible means of things to make the stay memorable. Even during the off-season, this wide and smooth beach is bustling with surfers and people walking their dogs. In fact, even for casual travellers, this beach is a vibrant option along with artists who gather up on the coastline to paint it. The places around to visit are Footbridge Beach, Main Beach, and Ogunquit Beach – each point comes with its own unique aspect of the adventure. Do not forget to visit the restaurants on Main Street offering delicious seafood and a variety of farm-to-table dishes.

Just a drive from Farmington to the mountain is a scenic road through the forest and the village of Kingfield along the Carrabassett River. This 4,237-foot summit has snow spread through its peak like a ribbon, making the mountain a view to behold. For adventure buffs, there are skiing options available.
