The 7 Best Backroads In Maine For A Long Scenic Drive

Maine is well-known for its many rural areas and natural beauty. While people from larger states might think our swaths of rural land make us less-than-desirable, we think this makes us better! In fact, there aren’t a lot of places that will allow you to jump in the car and experience the beauty of rural America as easily as Maine. Lucky for us, we have plenty of backroads that allow us to do that. If you want to see the best of Maine, or you simply need to clear your head, you’ll love these drives!

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/
