Explore a new city

Make it a goal to visit one (or more!) new cities this year. It can be close by or in another state/country.

Visiting Maine is like setting out on a journey, so pack your most rugged boots and waterproof coat. Start your journey in one of these Maine cities:

1. Auburn, Maine

Auburn, Maine, is home to about 23,000 people. It is the country seat of Androscoggin County, similar to Lewiston, Maine, which is just across the river. The L-A is what people usually call these two cities together. Because the city’s economy is diverse, it has a wide range of places for entertainment, parks, trails, and historical sites. 

2. Portland, Maine

Portland’s creative types, foodies, beach bums, and snowbirds enjoy its nightlife, shopping, and tourism. Despite its size, the city remains rural.

In the summer, Portland sees an influx of visitors because of the city’s lively waterfront, where activities like sailing and outdoor festivals draw crowds while lobster rolls are devoured. Winter brings snow to Old Port, yet the neighborhood has a beauty normally reserved for the state’s permanent residents.
