Maine, a state in the New England Region of the United States. It is bordered by New Hampshire to its west, the Gulf of Maine to its southeast, and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Quebec, and the northeast and northwest. Maine is the 12th-smallest state by area, the 9th least populous, 13th-least densely populated and the most rural among the 50 U.S. States. It is also the northeasternmost among the contiguous United States, the northernmost state east of the Great Lakes, the only state whose name consists of a single syllable, and the only state to border exactly one other US state. About half of Maine’s area lies to the north of the 45th parallel. The most populous city in Maine is Portland, while its capital is Augusta.
Maine has traditionally been known for its jagged, rocky Atlantic Ocean and bayshore coastlines; smoothly contoured mountains; heavily forested interior; picturesque waterways; and its wild lowbush blueberries and seafood cuisine, especially lobster and clams. Coastal Maine and Down East Maine, particularly in the vicinity Portland, are becoming an important center of the creative economy. This is also bringing gentrification.
