Maine is largely known for its natural attractions and sites, but the state has much more to offer than unique coastlines and thick forests. Following are just a few of Maine’s most popular attractions:

Eartha: A revolving globe in Yarmouth, Eartha brings in hundreds of tourists daily. The structure holds the Guinness World Record for the largest revolving globe and is kept in a three-story glass building. Visitors can learn about the globe’s history and look at the extreme detail of the continents on Eartha’s surface.

Acadia National Park: Perfect for visitors who want to marvel at Maine’s nature, Acadia National Park covers 49,000 acres of land along the coastline. The park is home to two campgrounds and numerous hiking trails. Visitors can also enjoy the park’s many beaches, forests, and inland streams and lakes.

Kennebunkport: Located roughly 12 miles from Portland, Kennebunkport is a small coastal town. It is particularly popular during summer and is home to several historic buildings and homes. Visitors can also enjoy learning about local history at the town’s Town House School and Seashore Trolley Museum or walking through the shops and galleries in Dock Square.
