Visit Maine Media Room

Dear Media Friend, 

Welcome to the Maine Office of Tourism Press Room.   We are delighted by your interest in covering Maine and hope we can help you discover the authenticity, originality and creativity that so defines The Maine Thing.

The views, the food, the people, the culture, the welcoming are all part of Maine where we like to say the unexpected comfortably lives around every corner. Maine Insiders will tell you that the four seasons and the five senses are the best of friends.  You can wake up on the coast, scale a mountain in the afternoon, and end your day reveling in Maine’s eclectic dining scene.  Our innovative chefs combine “farm-to-table” with “sea-to-table” to create a dining experience that promises to delight. 

Maine has a thriving arts and culture scene that happens everywhere from artist colonies to art museums, and from street art to Maine-made crafts handed down through generations.  

From the great outdoors to the great indoors … from inns that welcome you with local charm, to secluded cabins or hotels and resorts that pamper your body and soul…and festivals that offer spontaneous fun … you’ll find there is an amazing amount of originality to discover in Maine.   It’s ironic that the state with such a short name has such a long list of things to do.

If you are interested in visiting us for an article you are preparing, please fill out our Media Trip Request Form and send it to us.  We look forward to captivating you!
