Welcome to the Bigroads.com guide to the top 25 attractions in Maine!

Spend some time exploring Maine's hundreds of miles of coastline and it's alpine mountain ranges. Feed on fresh-caught lobster and clams while visiting lighthouses and beaches in the summer. Winter sports are incredibly popular here, with thousands of miles of snowmobile trails, hundreds of ponds & lakes for ice fishing, and plenty of skiing and snowshoeing trails.

The list below represents our opinionated selections for the top 25 attractions in the state of Maine. Please take note that this list is sorted alphabetically (and not by quality or rank).
