What town should we move to in Southern Me.?
I'm a regular poster in the Pond and the Aquarium forums...but i really the help of Mainers.
We really love Maine and want to move there. My daughter is a senior in HS here on Long Island, NY, so we figured next summer is our time to go. We've visited many times but cannot find the perfect town (if it exists). We'd love someplace with a downtown feel (like Stars Hollow in the Gilmore Girls--anyone?...anyone?) Needs to be near-ish a College. Needs to have good schools (5 kids--ages 17 to 2)I'd love to have an acre or more to grow my beautiful gardens in. We love snow--old houses--mountains--wood stoves--good people.
I just can't commute to NYC anymore. In fact, ever since 9/11 I get freaked out going in on the train and subway. I witnessed that day first hand and will always be affected by it. So, we want to move to the perfect little town...and live our life the way it should be.
thanks for your input everyone!!!
