Why We Call it Vactionland!
Why We Call it Vacationland
With more than 6,000 lakes and ponds, 5,000 streams, over 30 state parks and almost 3,500 miles of coastline, it's no wonder Maine is known as "Vacationland" (it's even on our license plates!)
Over 80% of Maine - that's about 17 million acres - remains forested with a beautiful mix of white pine, hemlock, spruce, fir and a variety of hardwoods.
Between the breeze coming off the ocean and the naturally air purifying nature of trees, it not only looks good here, it smells good too!
