Food. Drinks. Fashion. Nightlife. Music. And Maine’s best things to do. is for people who do stuff.From happy hours and brunch guides to the best local shops for jeans, we’re here to help you discover the best of Maine – and not just the touristy stuff (although who doesn’t love a brewery tour or island bike ride now and then?). is for people who like to dine out Friday night and go for a paddle Saturday morning. We shop local, we road trip, we drink craft beer. And we like to experience Maine first hand – from the mountain trails to the wine walks. Plus we’re easy to navigate on your phone and tablet (should you find yourself in desperate need an open-late bar or good Thai food in a pinch, which you will).
