It's like tasty morsel snacks of the state called Vacationland.

Maine is less people, more wide open unspoiled spaces. Even the pandemic can not wreck plans to hike a mountain trail or fish a Maine lake. Rural, well spaced and sparse population are the perfect combination to keep everyone safe up here in Maine.

You have the area pretty much all to yourself. Winter just makes Maine even less people to eat into the leisure time enjoyment. Some of the coastal second, third and more homes along the coast of Maine have boarded up windows. To protect against the northeast gale force winds if they decide to pay a visit.

Off season, the shoulder before and after time periods to vacation in Maine.

Those give you the best bang for the buck. And you don't feel like anyone is pushing or shoving. No problem parking in summer time hot spots. No delay with slow or none moving traffic from too many tourists either.

The locals are friendlier and more relaxed when the tide of tourists are away.

Get creative and head to the hills, get out on a lake to ice fish, kayak etc depending on the season. Find your hidden corner of whatever state you live. And if in a crowded city, stuck? Head "up on the roof" as the song sings to clear your head and capture your thoughts @edsilva .
