Maine is a fantastic place to live. We have over 3,500 miles of coastline and 542,629 acres of state and national parks.
Maine offers an unparalleled quality of life, combining a rich New England heritage with a strong work ethic, relaxed style of life and scenic lakes, rivers and coastline second to none.
Our traditional employers are interspersed with software startups, small business incubators, and large-scale semiconductor fabrication facilities. A business person coming to Maine as well as employees and their families can rely on a lifestyle of low, almost non-existent crime, few instances of commuter congestion, and access to an abundance of cultural, recreational, and sporting activities year round.
Maine is rated #1 in the nation - the best state in which to raise a child - according to a July, 1999 report by the Children's Rights Council, a Washington, D.C. based national advocacy group.
