There's no denying that Maine is one of the biggest vacation destinations for anyone across the country -- heck, probably even the world. (They don't call us "Vacationland" for nothing, ya know!)

We have EVERYTHING here -- beautiful foliage in the fall, delicious lobstahs and chowdah in the summer; trails, oceans, lighthouses, mountains, A FLIPPIN NATIONAL PARK -- we have EVERYTHING. So, when a woman from El Reno, Oklahoma (just outside of Oklahoma City), Annie Fisher, posted in the Everything Maine Facebook group that she was planning on visiting us soon and wanted suggestions on what and where to visit -- she was overwhelmed with responses.

So here it is -- the amazing sights in Maine that are must-see spots for people from away, according to Mainers!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
