The Paul Bunyan Statue In Maine Was Just Added To A US Travel Bucket List… And We Couldn’t Agree More

With all the attractions to see in Maine, it might feel like focusing on the big ones is a good strategy. And it might be for some. If you’re visiting and find yourself short on time, we understand seeing things like Acadia, Portland, and the coast. But if you want to delve into the quirkier side of Maine, you’ll want to get off-the-beaten-path and find your way to attractions like this one! And don’t take our word for it. This statue was recently featured on the USA Today list of 60 spots in America to visit before you die. You can see them all here.

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/
