We often hear people say , ‘Oh, you live in Maine, I have always wanted to visit Maine!’ Then there are many people that return year after year to experience their favorite places or seek new experiences and new places to visit and stay. We welcome them all!
Over the years the signs entering our state have welcomed visitors with a clear hospitable greeting. From ‘Vacationland’ to ‘The Way Life Should Be’ to the current sign, ‘Maine-Welcome Home’.
Maine Tourism Association is constantly revamping their strategy to generate new tourism customers. The focus in the future is to empathize Maine’s authentic brand. The state of Maine speaks to people’s vacation wants and needs. From active outdoor adventures to quiet getaways in a cozy bed and breakfast .
Maine has 8 regions, all with unique experiences attached. For example, here are just a few that come to people’s minds when they dream of Maine.
3.5 million acres of forested land. Unspoiled and preserved.
Hundreds of lakes, rivers and the mountains of western Maine.
Miles of craggy rocky shores and smooth sandy beaches in the south.
60 preserved lighthouses. We once had guests that came back each year and checked off a few lighthouse visits. Think of them often, hope they made all 60!
Vast number of off-shore islands. From the historically famous and frequently visited Monhegan Island to the Islands of Casco Bay.
The many small seaside and inland towns and our ‘big city’ of Portland (2018 Restaurant City of the Year)

To conclude this ode to Maine I want to quote Maine’s new Governor, Janet Mills.
“Maine is a great place to live, work and raise a family, it’s a great place to call home.”
“This sign is a simple, inclusive, and powerful message which our state will send to every family, business owner, and young person coming into our state – you are welcome here,” Mills said. “It is also a reminder of the love we all share for this great state as we ensure that Maine is a place of opportunity for all those hoping to create a better future for themselves and their family. To all of them I say, welcome home.”
Thanks for Listening,
Janet Wolf (Rick’s wife and proud of it!)
