Reasonable Cost of Living

Maine has become increasingly popular over the past several years, and for good reason – the low cost of living! Housing, groceries, medical care and more of life’s necessities are reasonable and easily accessible!

Stunning Coastline

The rocky coastline of Maine is one of its best-known features, and the reason many tourists flock from all over the world to visit! With more than 5,000 miles of coast, spotted with islands, lobster boats, and wildlife, it’s unlike any other place in the country. Having access to these views is a luxury of its own kind!

A few of our favorite coastal vacation spots that shouldn’t be missed include:

  • Kennebunkport 
  • Portland 
  • Monhegan Island 
  • Boothbay Harbor 
  • Acadia National Park

Four Breathtaking Seasons

Maine is the northernmost state in New England, offering the best of each season, and experiencing the transitions is something truly special. Going from a snowy, fairytale winter into a balmy blooming spring, a humid and warm summer into a crisp, foliage-filled fall – there is nothing quite like it. 

Local Culture

Maine has something for everyone, from incredible food and art to outdoor activities. The Portland Museum of Art has thousands of renowned pieces ranging from local artists to Picasso. There is an award-winning restaurant around seemingly every corner, with no end to unique, mouthwatering dishes to try. Looking to learn something new or finesse an old study? Consider the University of Southern Maine’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), a program for seniors to continue their education!
