Mouth-watering lobster. The faint scent of the salty sea drifting in on a gentle breeze. The craggy shoreline, topped with evergreens, standing proud against the Atlantic Ocean. Charming New England villages scattered along the coast and in between rolling hills. These are only a few of the memories you'll make in Maine, the northeastern most state in the United States. 

Maine claims the oldest chartered city in the country, York, and beautiful fall scenery.  Nature lovers will feel right at home in New England's largest state, where they can kayak or swim in one of the area's many lakes in the summer or snowmobile and ski in the winter. 

And business travelers need not feel left out. Portland, Maine's metropolitan area, sits right on Casco Bay, a gateway to historic forts and lighthouses. Complete with numerous meeting locations to choose from, Portland provides a fine business atmosphere. At night, take a walk along the city's waterfront and just try the lobster at a local restaurant. Even if you're not a big seafood fan, the fresh catch in Maine may just turn you into one!
