I want to eventually move to Maine..and am looking for ideas of what towns are the best ..like most affordable..and good job market..
I don't really know ,I've lived here in Maine for over ten years ..as far as a good job market ,it'd probably be Portland, most affordable is where I am in far northern Maine ..
As far as the people ,they're alright...I see mostly kind people when I go out
They pump your gas at a couple stations,and the stores bring your grocery bags to your car ... Taxes wicked cheap and most everything else is too as far as that stuff
A lot of French people ..
Winters are usually brutal ,summers are usually very mild though
Have lived in Maine during college summers and worked southern Maine mostly as a sales rep. I luv Maine. If you like the ocean the coast is gorgeous and seasonal. Portland is a cool city-liberal, open-minded and weed is legal. If you want more specifics PM me.
My friend who goes there all the time likes Portland (Maine)... it's the most progressive part of the state. Depends if you want isolation, coastline, living on an island or just an affordable, civil place to live. Large parts of the state are extremely conservative and provincial (especially the areas bordering on New Brunswick. Another friend grew up in Presque Isle in the Northeastern part of the state and couldn't wait to get the hell out of there and is not a fan. The coastline is gorgeous.
