8 Times Buzzfeed tried to explain Maine

Maine is a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, Maine is where you move away from when you’re 19 but then come back to when your 30 and realize the world is ridiculous. For others, Maine is a place to vacation in the warm months and the place to escape form in the cold months.

But if you’re Buzzfeed, Maine is a lot like a unicorn and therefore fair game for multiple posts that try to get a basic understanding of what we natives already know: Maine is damn awesome.

Here are eight times that Buzzfeed, the site that the internet loves to love and share, wrote about Maine.
