Maine is both the northernmost and easternmost portion of New England. The state is known for its rocky coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, dense forest and wilderness, Appalachian Mountains, lobster, and postcard-worthy beauty. These elements of the state make Maine a tourist state. Hikers come to complete the Appalachian Trail at Mt. Katahdin. Outdoorsmen come to hunt bears, moose, and deer, and each summer, tourists swarm the coastline for days at the beach, fishing, and fresh seafood. Maine’s agricultural products include poultry, blueberries, apples, maple syrup, and even potatoes. Naval shipbuilding, biotechnology, paper, and lumber are a few of the large industries in the state. Maine is a great state to both call home or to enjoy as a tourist.
