Maine is located at the northeast corner of the U.S., the northernmost state in New England. Summer tourists enjoy relatively cool temperatures but the winters are cold enough to challenge the hardiest residents. Maine is known for its forests and its rocky Atlantic coast, and its residents refer to Maine as "down east."

Maine is an enormous geographic area with a year round population less than many international cities. Because it is so enormous and has not developed as fast as other parts of U.S., and because historically Maine was not easy to travel (or invade or hold), Maine's heritage, arts, history, and culture all go hand in hand. They form an enormous backdrop which travelers can see and join. They are part of Maine's recreation more than many locale's because enjoying each other's songs, words, pictures, sculpture, cuisine, outdoor crafts and wild life and plant gatherings is inseparable from being a Mainer. And those attributes are part of Maine's business life, not just because Maine seeks tourists and visitors for those things, but because Maine herself loves her Arts and Entertainment.
