Posted by Veronica On September - 12 - 2014

Happy Mature Couple Holding HandsMaine is a beautiful place, and many people love to live there. It’s also a popular retirement area. If you’re looking for a wonderful place to spend your retirement years, here are 5 of the best reasons for relocating to Maine.

Golfing

If you love to golf, Maine is the right place for you. There are miles and miles of coastline, and a lot of it has golf courses built along the way. You can enjoy the amazing waterfront views while you relax on the golf course. That’s hard to beat, and something you can appreciate for a large part of the year. Even if you’re not a huge golf fan right now, you may find that it’s a great hobby to take up once you’re officially retired.

Lobster

Maine is famous for its amazing lobster. Whether you like to hav it with a little melted butter, or you appreciate the merits of a good lobster roll, there are great ways to enjoy this wonderful delicacy. Many people put lobster into stews, gumbos, and salads, too, but the most popular way to get it is through the lobster roll. There are food trucks and great little restaurants that specialize in that, and when you retire in Maine you can explore the area and try them all.
