Maine is the most northeastern state in the United States. In fact, it is where America's day starts - on Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. With a nickname like Vacationland, it's no wonder that Maine is one of the most traveled to New England states. Top destinations include Portland, Brunswick and Bangor. In addition, many coastal towns are also at the top of the list including Bar Harbor, Old Orchard Beach and York. Maine is great both for the traveler looking to get away from it all in nature at the end of the Appalachian Trail (Baxter State Park) or for those interested in hanging out in a small city like Portland, Maine.
