The Best City In America Is Actually Right Here In Maine

Ask anyone from anywhere in America what they think of Maine and “urban life” probably isn’t the first thing you’ll hear. Maine is well known for its stunning wilderness, its rivers and lakes, its craggy Atlantic coastline and its postcard-perfect small towns, but cities? With apologies to Bangor and Lewiston, many people would contend we have only one “real” city — but it just so happens that said city is getting more and more national attention for its amazing amenities and quality of life.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Portland isn’t the only urban treasure that Maine has to offer. Take a look at the city that Matador called one of the coolest cities in America.
