History of Maine
In 1604, the French initially settled here, but they met Indians already living here, including the Mikmaq. In 1607 the first British came via the Plymouth Company, from 1630 the Massachusetts Bay Colony forced the settlement and the first sawmill in North America was built in 1634 in Piscataqua. At that time there were all kinds of conflicts, both between the British and the French and between individual Indian tribes.
For a long time, Maine was part of Massachusetts (though not bordering on it) and was only allowed to join as a separate U.S. state on March 15, 1820, after the Missouri compromise was found, relatively late.
Maine is politically relatively liberal today, but does not support the Democratic Party as clearly as other New England states. The voting behavior here has been quite changeable in the past.
Maine: climate and weather
The climate in southern Maine and on the coast is more moderate than inland. Summers are generally warm and winters are cool to very cold and snowy. Unlike many other U.S. states, natural disasters are rare here. Every now and then, hurricane foothills move across Maine.
National park hikes, lighthouses and white water rafting
Maine is a natural paradise. Both the attractive rocky coast, the sandy beaches and the cozy fishing villages invite you to linger.
The idyllic lighthouses that decorate the landscape in the coastal region are well known. Around 60 of these lighthouses are still in operation and are still important for shipping today. Sunrises and sunsets are a special experience here.
However, exciting white water rafting and other water sports are possible on the rivers in Maine, and fishing enthusiasts will also get their money’s worth.
Maine whale watching tours are also available and provide a great opportunity to learn more about the ocean and its importance to the state. In addition to whales, you can also discover other marine mammals such as seals and sea birds.
Not only the tasty lobster, but also other culinary delights such as fresh cake with wild blueberries or the delicious moxie lemonade offer four places to feast. The largest bridge observatory in the world can be found at the 646 m long Penobscott Narrows Bridge, but Maine is best known for the rugged Acadia National Park with all its lakes, mountains and an impressive rocky coast.
It is not without reason that this is one of the most visited national parks in the USA. Numerous islands belong to this national park, the largest part is on Mount Desert Island, which is connected to the mainland by a short dam. Also worth seeing is the old fishing harbor Bar Harbor, where the entrance to the national park is located.
You have a beautiful panoramic view from Cadillac Mountain (505 m), from where you can be one of the first in the USA to see the sunrise. Also worth seeing is the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse on Mount Desert Island.
With so much nature, the region’s interesting cities could be neglected. A visit to Augusta is worthwhile because of the Maine State House, the State Museum and the Pine Tree State Arboretum.
Portland, the largest city in the state, is not only known for its lighthouse, the Portland Head Light, but also for its old port and as the seat of numerous banks and insurance companies.
The city is accessible via an international airport and is known for two sports clubs, the Portland Pirates (ice hockey) and the Maine Red Claws (basketball), of which you should definitely watch a game. The tallest building in the city and the whole of Maine (!) Are the Franklin Towers at just 62 m.
The McLellan-Sweat Mansion from 1800 and the historic Fort Gorges are also worth seeing. You can also visit the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conecption and the Farmers Market. Art lovers should take a look at the Portland Museum of Art.
