These 8 Scenic Maine Spots Feel New And Undiscovered, Making Them Totally Worth The Trip

Does anyone remember the days that Maine was considered far-off the beaten path? When driving up from New York was a big deal and visiting for the weekend was unheard of? Us either. It feels like Maine is officially on the map and that means that some of the quieter places are more known. But that doesn’t mean everything has been discovered. There are still plenty of places that are new to us and we think that might be the same for some of our readers. Check out these spots and let us know how many you’ve been to!

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:

How many of these spots have you explored? If they’re new to you, which ones are top priorities? let us know in the comments!
