As a student at the University of New England, you get to live where others come to vacation.
A popular tourist destination for generations, both Biddeford and Portland provide a wealth of outdoor recreational activities, a thriving arts community, lots of convenient shopping, and nationally recognized restaurants.
For three seasons, you can enjoy the region's abundance of sprawling sand beaches. In the winter, the region's many hiking and walking trails become places for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, while western Maine's nearby peaks allow for all kinds of alpine adventures.
You'll also enjoy opportunities to visit Maine's famous seafood restaurants, which reside in quaint seaside towns along U.S. Route 1. At these time-tested Maine institutions, you can eat lobster, clam chowder, and fried seafood fresh out of the ocean. And historic Boston is less than two hours away.
