Maine is a state like no other! It’s vast, just populated enough to be ‘cool’ and there is no shortage of adventure!

In Maine, you can hit up the Mall in the morning, go hiking in the mountains in the afternoon and eat dinner ocean side in the evening! 

If you are moving to Maine, there are a few little things you will notice right away…that will most certainly let you know that you are not in Kansas anymore!

1. This does not mean you have a snow day!

 This is considered a minor snow storm with a few snow drifts. Just brush off the car and head on in to school and work!

2. You can’t get there from here!

If you stop to ask for directions while in Maine, you will probably get told ‘You can’t get there from here!’. There are multiple ways to get anywhere you want to go in the State…and there is no doubt you will probably choose the longest one!

3. You can literally buy lobster just about anywhere!

This is no joke! You can buy lobster at your local grocery store…or out of the back of a pick-up on the side of the road! The closer to the coast you get…the more lobster vendors pop up!
