    Maine (ME) state of USA

    There's a quality of life in Maine which is this singular and unique. I think. It's absolutely a world onto itself - Jamie Wyeth



    History & Geography:
    Maine is the 39th most extensive and the 42nd most populous of the 50 U.S. states. Maine is also known as The Pine Tree State which covers almost 35,385 mi2 giving space to 1.33 million people to reside in this state.
    The US State of Maine was established on the 15th of March 1820 and its state capital is Augusta.
    Maine, the northeastern most U.S. state, It is bordered by New Hampshire to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the south and east, and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec to the east and north, respectively. This state is known for its rocky coastline, maritime history and nature areas like the granite and spruce islands of Acadia National Park.

    Natural Resources:
    Maine's important natural resources are its vast forests and its fertile soils. Granite and limestone deposits are abundant but not fully mined. One of the largest copper and zinc deposits are found in Maine but they are hard to get at.

    Economy:
    Maine is a leading producer of paper and wood products, which are the most valuable of all manufactures in the state. Maine's generally poor soil, short growing season, and remoteness from industrial and commercial centers have long militated against development and population growth. Lumbering, shipbuilding, and textile production have all enjoyed booms in the past, but changes in technology and competition from other states have always undercut the state's economic position. Manufacturing is still the largest sector in the state's economy.

    Delicacies:
    Maine is the top producer of Lobsters and blueberries. Maine is fishing country and produces clams and other seafood. Portland, Maine's largest city, counts with a variety of ethnic restaurants but outside there it is mainly simple American cuisine. Hot dogs and beans are the traditional dinner. The dishes which are a must have include: moxie, a brown soft drink not unlike root beer with a bitter taste, whoopee pie, cream sandwiched between chocolate chip cookies.

    Climate:
    Maine has a humid continental climate with warm humid summers. Winters are cold and snowy throughout the state, and are especially severe in the northern parts of Maine.

    Counties:
    The U.S. state of Maine has sixteen counties. Before statehood, Maine was officially part of the state of Massachusetts and was called the District of Maine.
