... Maine is the largest producer of blueberries in the United States.
... Maine is the only state in the Union to be bordered by just one other state: New Hampshire.
Maine is considered the most rural of all 50 states, and there’s something about a land that’s a little wild that deserves further review. Indeed, the state has a population of 1.3 million people and a median household income of $56,277. This puts it in 35th place in terms of the rankings.
However, it’s tops in so many other ways, like the fact that Mount Katahdin is the endpoint for most people thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. When it comes to the economy, the rural nature of Maine definitely comes back up to the surface: shipbuilding, tobacco, dairy, apples, maple sugar, and commercial fishing are all strong staples of the economy.
Tourism is the best way to enjoy Maine to the fullest, especially for those that love to be in the great outdoors. Deer, bear, and moose hunting is a big pastime amongst visitors and residents alike. Prominent employers in the area include Hannaford Bros, L.L. Bean, TD Bank, and Fairchild Semiconductor.
