Every state has something special to those who live there. From BBQ in North Carolina to Key Lime Pie in Florida, there are some things you just won’t find in other places. Maine is no different. In fact, I have recently decided that the things unique to Maine are actually significantly better than those unique to every other state. Key Lime Pie? I’ve made it and come pretty darn close to the real thing. But, try to find a proper lobster roll outside of Maine? Nope, not possible. So, let’s dive in to the things Maine is known for – some things you might be able to locate elsewhere but that just won’t be the same as what you’ll get in Maine.

These are all unique Maine things, making us special among all the other states… and that’s the main thing.

Those are just a few things that Maine is known for. What do you think is completely unique to Maine?  Tell us all about it over on Facebook!
