Our Pine Tree State proudly carries the moniker 'Vacationland,' and it's not merely a catchphrase emblazoned on our license plates—it's a testament to our state's allure. While opinions on the influx of tourists may vary among Mainers, regardless of how you feel about those 'from away' coming to our Pine Tree State, you have to acknowledge the good that comes from it.

Some positives of having such a desirable home state include the additional revenue that comes with tourism. People come here, spend their money, support local businesses, and then they leave. It’s a perfect equation.
