13 Strange Habits Every Mainer Will Defend To The Death

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Mainers are a special breed. We scoff at what southerners consider cold weather, we drink a medicinal tasting local soda (well, not ALL of us) and we pack the kids for school the night of a blizzard knowing that the school bus will pull up at its regular time the next day. Yes, folks – there are some habits seen in Mainers that might come across as strange, but we’ll defend ourselves no matter what. It takes a special type to be a Mainer and, of that, we are pretty darn proud!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
