Known as "The Pine Tree State", Maine attracts many people due to its rocky shoreline, delectible seafood and freshly harvested potatoes. Renting a loft in Maine will lead most people toward the coast due to the location of the metropoliitan areas.
Rent or own a loft in Augusta, the state's capital and find that one of the most active lake areas is not far from town. Visit and see firsthand that the China Lakes region is busy year round. Open for water sports, swimming, and camping during the summer months this area attracts almost as many for ice fishing and snowmobiling during winter. Count on shopping, work and leisure activities to be close by and easily accesible by riding the city bus.
Located right next to the Atlantic Ocean, Portland may just be Maine's busiest city. Boasting restaurants and shops representing just about every culture known to the western world, the Old Port section draws repeat customers to walk the original cobblestone streets. In the center of the city, Deerfield Park sponsors numerous outside events and concerts for families to enjoy. Don't be surprised to even see a small traveling circus or carnival offering rides, performances and food during summer months. Connected to all major cities, Portland offers train service to Boston, New York City and Washington DC. Attractive to tenants as well as landlords, Portland is a growing city with much to offer.
If a smaller metropolitan area is desired, Bangor, Maine is known as the home of Hannibal Hamlin and Stephen King. Situated in the middle of the city along the Kenduskeag Stream, is a statue of former Vice President Hamlin.
Take a walk down West broadway for a close up look of Mr. King's popular fence adorned with fierce creatures.
Rent a loft downtown for views of the street where the famous Brady Gang was involved in a shootout in 1937.
At the northernmost part of Maine, the town of Fort Kent is about as close to New Brunswick, Canada as one can get. Rent a reasonably large loft here and find that French is the primary language. Close to the northern lakes region, Fort Kent residents are very familiar with boating and fishing. Easy to navigate due to only one main street through town, Fort Kent is heavily influenced by French Canadian fashion.
Down at the southernmost part of Maine, Kittery is known as an outlet haven. Featuring popular stores at cheaper prices, Kittery is fast paced with tourism yearround. Located near the coast, this busy town is abundant with lofts.
