We received our negative COVID test results and drove the long way to Maine. Let us tell you – it was well worth the trip and it quickly became one of our favorite places in the entire United States.
The rest of the United States could learn a thing or two about adapting to the COVID situation from the state of Maine. Besides the strict travel restrictions which will weed out potential COVID cases coming in from travelers, the state as a whole have implemented modifications at restaurants, parks, retail centers, and breweries that made us feel very comfortable. Everyone is required to wear a mask in public, there are plenty of outdoor restaurants and breweries, everyone adheres to social distancing, and guess what – everyone listens. Because of that, Maine’s tourism sector has not taken as much of a hit as many would think during these times. Furthermore, the visitors and locals feel comfortable knowing that everyone’s health is being taken seriously.
