The New England state of Maine is known for its scenery; from its rocky coastline to its rolling hills and rugged mountains, dense forests and attractive rivers. A centre for skiing and snowboarding in winter, Maine also offers fun outdoor activities all year round, as well as opportunities just to admire its breath-taking natural beauty. For easy and efficient car hire in Maine, Alamo has depots at both Portland International Airport and Bangor International Airport. Picking up one of Alamo's fleet of modern, reliable cars couldn't be more straightforward, especially if you have booked online. From there you are on your way to exploring all that Maine has to offer.
The friendly, picturesque city of Portland has much to see and do, and the historic Old Port District and Arts District should be at the top of your list for checking out the city's museums, parks and historic buildings. Portland is also a great place to eat, and is known for its Farmer's Market and restaurants that focus on locally sourced and organic food. Vegetarians have a wider choice than in many US states, but Portland, and Maine generally, is best known for its seafood, especially the famous Maine lobster. Whether you eat it in a lobster roll, a lobster bake, or buy it fresh from the market to prepare yourself, you really can't experience Maine without eating what many consider to be the best lobster in the world.
If you're arriving in Bangor it is just a short drive on route 1A to Ellsworth and from there on Route 3 to the Acadia National Park, which occupies most of Mount Desert Island. The total journey is about 50 miles; from Portland it's a longer trip of about 160 miles, taking Interstate 95 before joining Route 3 at Augusta. The trip is certainly worth it however, with spectacular natural features spread across 47,000 acres, taking in mountains, lakes, beaches, forests and every kind of outdoor activity.
Not for nothing is Maine known as the Lighthouse State, and you could do worse than to use your hire car to visit all 65 historic lighthouses along the Atlantic coast. You should also take in the state's many family-friendly sandy beaches along the southern coast, or the more scenic and secluded bays further north. And whether you're camping out or staying in one of the many picturesque towns along the way, you'll be glad of your safe and reliable hire car from Alamo.
