What Mainers have known for a long time is finally making its way through the rest of the country. The long-asked question, “Are people in Maine nice?” has finally been answered. Undoubtedly, Maine is the friendliest state in New England! And now we have the research to back up the claim. Vacationland was recently included on a list of the country’s friendliest states, and we’re proud as punch. In fact, from the capital of Maine to Kittery to all the way to Washington County, Maine, we think this state is full of good vibes. Not entirely sure how a state that some people don’t even realize isn’t part of Canada made the list? Here are a few of our guesses.

What is the most beautiful aerial footage of Maine?
The most beautiful aerial footage of Maine exists for just about every region of the state. A few of our favorites capture the coast in a way that just can't be done on the ground. One of the best videos features places like Boothbay and Bristol. Another beautiful video managed to capture the state in just about every season. The summer water and fall foliage have never looked better! And, of course, we can't forget Acadia National Park. This place is simply stunning from above.
