    This area is absolutely beautiful. It has the best of all worlds, the ocean, the hiking trails, small mountains nearby for hiking, lakes for kayaking and canoeing, fishing, hunting, etc. I couldn't pick a better place to live nature wise! This area is stunning especially when it comes to the ocean, our largest attraction!

    I am lucky to live in an area where the worst we have gotten (knock on wood) are bad winter blizzards. I live in Maine... I can handle a blizzard! Every season is beautiful, bringing truly the best weather I can see (based on national news).

    There are mostly mom-and-pop places that mainly serve the tourists that come to the area each summer. We are a very tourist centered town. There is one large construction company that builds multimillion dollar homes. If we want to access chain restaurants, the most popular places are 45 min to 1 hour away.
