50 Shades of Gray, Maine
This little town has a lot to offer
By day, this proper and sleepy little town would appear to follow all the rules. All outward appearances betray the deep yearning to be noticed...to be loved ...to be ...Ok I haven't read"50 Shades"., but you know where I am going with this. This proper New England Town is letting it's hair town and has a lot to offer it's residents and visitors.
Like most places around this great country, Maine has an interesting relationship between rival towns and communities. Often "Insert name here"Jokes and stereotypes pop up and stick as good natured rivalry turns let's say competitive: The Battle of the Bridge rivalries sprung up in all our river straddling communities, Saco & Biddeford, Portland & South Portland, Lewiston & Auburn, Bangor & Brewer to name a few. Gray has not been immune; I have been guilty of deriding a few municpalities in my day. "Gray...The City as Colorful as It's Name" was bandied about in my circles more than once. All in good fun I might add, because Gray, Maine is a town that has a lot to offer. Several miles North of Portland, Maines largest city, Gray is a pastoral bedroom community within easy commute to Portland and Lewiston /Auburn. This makes it a natural choice to find a place called home for many families. Gray's proximity to the Lakes region and an easy drive to ski mountains when the snow flies makes it an even more desireable location. With a population of about 7000 people, Gray manages to straddle the best of small town living and the conveniences of a larger city. There are many attractions and fun things to do as well as opportunities for home buyers looking to get a peice of Maine's good life. Vacation homes, period New Englanders and great neighborhoods abound and Grays location amonst 4 great towns make this region a stop on many homebuyers routes. Below I have included a few links with some of the cool things Gray has to offer. Whatever Shade of Gray you desire...I'm sure you'll find it here.
