Maine Takes #4 Spot on Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel

The Lonely Planet just released their Best in Travel 2020, The best destinations, journeys, & sustainable travel experiences for the year ahead.

Maine came in 4th place. According to Lonely Planet

New England’s biggest state has always been full of pride, but this year the love for ‘Vacationland’ will reach fever pitch as Maine celebrates its bicentennial. Across the region, towns and cities are holding special exhibitions, concerts and festivals to commemorate 200 years of statehood. Of course, even if Maine wasn’t celebrating a major milestone, it would still be a great time to visit. The culinary scene has exploded in recent years, and you’ll find farm-to-table restaurants, coffee roasters, artisanal bakers and craft brewers all across the state. And despite Maine’s growing popularity, it’s easy to escape the crowds amid the state’s vast forests and its dramatic, lighthouse-strewn coastline.
