Around 1,338,404 people reside in Maine. There is plenty to do in Maine, especially outside. Maine welcomes more than 30 million tourists each year.

Maine is a special state and the gem of the New England region. The state nickname is "The Pine Tree State" because over 80% of the state is covered with pine trees. These pine trees give us the official state flower, the white pine cone. Another popular nickname for the state is "Vacationland" because Maine is incredibly popular with vacationers from the United States and Canada. Maine's motto is Dirigo or Latin for "I lead." The phrase appears along with an image of the North Star on its official state seal. A black-capped chickadee is Maine's official state bird and doesn't migrate, which means you may spot the cheerful bird all year. The bird features a black-capped head and can be spotted in the forests, plus throughout suburban areas. It's even depicted on the state's official license plate.
