If you’re looking for the best moving company Maine has to offer, you’re in luck!
When you move to Maine, your home is the New England state known for its rocky coastline, low-rolling mountains, picturesque waterways, and seafood cuisine - especially lobster and clams. The state is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, New Hampshire to the west, and the Canadian provinces to the north. It is the most northern and eastern state in the country. Maine has a "drowned coast" landscape, where a rising sea level has invaded former land features, creating bays out of valleys and islands out of mountain tops. Winters are cold and snowy throughout the state, but coastal areas are moderated somewhat by the Atlantic Ocean, resulting in milder winters.
Soon, you’ll be among the ranks of the great people that call Maine home. The author, Stephen King, was born in Maine and has set many of his stories there, such as The Shawshank Redemption, which like many of his other works, was adapted into a movie that was also set in Maine. Other notable people from Maine include Anna Kendrick, Patrick Dempsey, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Nelson Rockefeller.
Augusta is the capital of Maine, and a great choice for relocation. Located on the Kennebec River, Augusta is home to the University of Maine at Augusta. Points of interest include the Blaine House, the historic building given to the state of Maine in 1919 to be used as the governors’ mansion.
The largest city in the state is Portland, and another fine choice for residence. With a metropolitan area that is home to half a million people, more than a third of Maine’s population lives here. The city has more than 230 restaurants, ranking it among the top cities in the United States with exceptional per capita restaurant density.
Just over twelve miles south of Portland lay the popular summer town of Kennebunkport. This historic town features museums, a restored area of town with many shops and galleries, and a scenic walkway from the square to Walker’s Point.
The oldest lighthouse in the state is the Portland Head Light. Located in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, this light station marks the primary entrance to the Portland Harbor shipping channel. It sits on a head of land in the Cisco Bay within the Gulf of Maine, and the lighthouse keepers’ house is a maritime museum. It was built in 1761, and is presently maintained by the U. S. Coast Guard. Call Allied today and we’ll help you set up your new home in Maine.
