Where in Maine?
September 2015

Each month, Down East editors select our favorite response to “Where in Maine?” Here is our favorite letter from the September 2015 issue.


The answer to September’s Where In Maine is my home port: Biddeford. Biddeford has a wonderful beach area, great new businesses, and some beautiful country scenery. The area around South Street and River Road is one of my favorites. Every visit, I check to make sure that particular windmill is still standing (though it has lost some teeth over the years). Seeing the photo made me wish I hadn’t already had my Maine holiday for 2015.
