The vast state of Maine, spread one to six hours from Boston, offers New England scenery with rocky coastlines and romantic harbors from Bangor to Portland. Outdoor enthusiasts head here for adventure (think Jeep tours and sea kayaking), while skiers are attracted to its many downhill slopes and Nordic trails, in season. Visitors can sup on fantastic seafood—dive in to a boiled lobster—or bargain shop at great outlets in Freeport and Kittery.
