Low, No Cost Maine Fun

Low, No Cost Maine Fun

Growing up in Maine, the need for lots of money to have fun, be entertained was missing.

The great wide outdoors of Vacationland being all around us was a good backdrop for starters.

Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, snowsledding and ski trips just some of the outdoor Maine recreational options.

Kayak and white water rafting trips down a Maine river.  Helping out on local Maine community yearly events as a volunteer. Watching Maine farming or woods, sporting operations. Venturing in to wildlife invested off the beaten path areas. Exploring and discovering Maine. All low or no cost options that hit you, affect you, shape you. It is easy to forget it is not like this here in Maine many other areas.

In my job as a 31 year veteran Maine real estate broker, I hear lots of horror stories from property buyers who paint a different picture of where they currently live. The purchase of property in Maine is often a safety net, a life preserver inner tube they carry around mentally to keep their sanity where they live out of state. For some it is more than a real estate investment. It is sanity protection.

The low low prices, the friendly but way fewer in number people in the population means space, freedom, no traffic, crime. More wildlife in Maine than people is a very good thing. Sometimes the long list of what an out of state Maine real estate buyer likes best is what we don’t have. No pollution, no bumper to bumper delays on the highways, no one messing with your personal property, etc.

Brighter stars at night in Maine because we lack light pollution seems a small enough situation. But to someone that has forgotten the sea of twinkling lights on a black velvet nightscape, it is a very big deal. Causes a squeal and inner “wow” when they turn their heads skyward. Same with comments about how blue our Maine sky is. How clean our many waterways are.

And my favorite observation from an outside Maine real estate buyer, how friendly everyone is.

Down to earth, helpful, waving, smiling, humming a tune and holding doors. Letting them go at a stop sign intersection. Or one of the few traffic lights that are pretty skimpy in number in Maine.

The hardworking local community, family minded folks are the big flavor that top off the eye candy Maine has all around it. But maybe a lot of it all boils down to being a little insulated, parked on the Canadian border on two sides, the rock bound oceanfront on another and less people making the perfect combination.

Come up for a steamed fresh Maine lobster, a piece of locally grown fresh blueberry pie, a baked potato. Meet some neat people. Maybe become one of them. Maine, get here quick as you can. Sample our Maine images. Our local Maine community videos. Our low cost Maine real estate property listings.
