Description

Explore the spruce-studded mountains, classic shoreline villages, and rugged character of the Pine Tree State with Moon Maine. Inside you'll find:
  • Strategic itineraries ranging from an eleven-day road trip through the whole state to a week on the coast, with ideas for every season
  • Must-see highlights and unique experiences: Sample wild blueberries, farmstead cheeses, and preserves from roadside farmers' markets or find the best beachfront lobster shack. Trace picturesque lighthouses down the coast, stop to smell the roses at the botanical gardens, and taste some of Maine's best wines, craft beer, and mead. Watch the boats sway in a quiet harbor, mingle with locals over a "chowdah suppah," and unwind on a sandy pocket beach
  • Outdoor adventures: Hike through majestic timberland forests or summit the peak of Katahdin on the final stretch of the Appalachian Trail. Take a moose safari, experience the rush of whitewater rafting, or ski the slopes at Sugarloaf. Canoe down the Allagash, paddle a sea kayak along the serpentine coastline, and immerse yourself in the secluded wilderness of Acadia National Park
  • Honest advice from born-and-raised Maine local Hilary Nangle on when to go, what to eat, and where to stay, from luxury hotels and historic inns to budget campgrounds
  • Full-color photos and detailed maps throughout
  • Essential information including background on Maine's landscape, climate, wildlife, and culture
With Moon Maine's practical tips and local insight, you can experience the best of the state.
