When it comes to Maine roads, we're blessed to have an abundance of some of the most scenic highways and byways anywhere in the United States.

Now, as a lifelong Mainer, if you're planning to do any of the states 'scenic drives', you may want to schedule your drive around the busy parts of Maine tourism season.

Oh, that reminds me- Did you know that fewer tourists visited Maine last year, but they stayed longer and spent more cash? Cool, eh?

Okay, back to our regularly scheduled programming. No matter what type of scenery you're looking for on your intra-state road trip, Maine has it all. From the rocky coastline, to rural winding roads and hills that pass through the foothills of Maine's largest mountains, you're sure to find a drive that inspires you.

And, if you're really adventurous, you might even take your drive in something other than a car. Maine is full of places where you can rent everything from convertibles to motorcycles, scooters, Polaris Slingshots and more!

Though I may be a little biased because I own a couple of them, I personally think that the best way to experience the sights and sounds of Maine from the road is on two wheels.

There's nothing I love more than heading out on a Saturday morning while the air is still damp and cool and riding all day long through the heat of the summer sun. Of course you always need to budget time in for lunch n' suds stop, too!

So take a look below at what we think are some of the most scenic drives in all of the Pine Tree State, and let us know if there are any that you think should really be on our list.

Drive safe!
