Most visitors to Maine are attracted by the sea, whether they're visiting as sailors or merely want to look at the water from someplace high and dry. Maine's jagged shoreline includes high cliffs pounded by rough waves, centuries-old houses overlooking calm harbors, forested islands and pretty lighthouses.
Maine's natural beauty extends far beyond the coast, however. Pine forests cover a majority of the state's inland areas, and there are lakes and mountains, rare wildlife and white-water rivers, all offering vacation getaways.
A Maine vacation offers opportunities to hike, shop, sail, kayak or simply relax and observe. The most visited destinations during the state's peak summer season are Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and the Kennebunks.
