18 Places In Maine Way Out In The Boonies But So Worth The Drive

In Maine, some might argue that “the boonies” are better than the city. We’d tend to agree with those people! There are so many wonderful places to explore in Maine, but some of the best of them are located off the beaten path. When faced with the choice of exploring the obvious in Maine or putting in a bit more work, we always vote for the trips that are slightly less convenient. So, load up the car and head to these places that are way out in the boonies!

Another pretty great way to get off the beaten path is to take a trip just for the drive. Try this beautiful road to nowhere in Acadia.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
