Maine is well known for lobster and scenic seaside towns however, away from the coast, the state is less populated than most realize. According to the U.S. Census, Maine is the most rural state in the country. What’s more, in recent years, The Pine Tree State has experienced high unemployment rates and increasing poverty levels due to disappearing manufacturing jobs.
