Maine Cities and Regions

Maine Highlands

From Penobscot River in the east to Moosehead Lake in the west, this vast outdoor wonderland is diverse, unspoiled nature at its best – a sprawling region of mountains, lakes, hills, valleys, and forests.

Downeast Region

Flyfish in Grand Lake Stream, discover an authentic lobstering village, and cruise offshore islands to spy a breaching whale or visit a puffin colony.


Offering glistening harbors and some of the finest sailing waters in the world, the nautical mid-coast is equal parts salty sailor lore and classic New England gentry.

Greater Portland

Visit museums and historic homes, or stroll the Old Port waterfront, where tony shops line brick Victorian-era sidewalks. Maine’s legendary shopping mecca, greater Portland boasts more than 170 outlet stores and the flagship L.L. Bean in Freeport.


Steeped in elitist-class culture, this well-heeled town is consciously cultivating its laid-back side. Grab a lobster dinner in flip-flops or dine in five-star style at the renowned White Barn Inn.

Southern Maine Coast

Ride a roaring wave in Ogunquit, explore the tidepools and natural dunes of Wells, cast your line into York Harbor, or build a sandcastle on 7-mile-long Old Orchard Beach.


With 16 lifts and three terrain parks, this winter sports playground boasts affordable lodging, superior-quality runs, and the only lift-served, above-tree-line skiing in the whole of the Northeast – not to mention the region’s longest continuous vertical drop. Views from the summit on a clear day stretch as far as Vermont, New Hampshire, and Canada. See our Sugarloaf Travel Guide
