Vacation for you - Taxation for Mainers - 10/23/2008
I've lived in Maine 28 years. Maine is a beautiful state and Lewiston/Auburn (twin cites) are a nice area. Everything here. 4 seasons, clean air, best water in the world. From L/A area, every type of lifestyle is accessible within an hour of travel. There is the ocean, small theme parks, mountains, lakes/rivers. I love Maine.

Auburn is the residential-half of the twin cities of Lewiston-Auburn (L-A). Whereas Lewiston grew up around shoe, linen and other factories, Auburn claimed the suburbs and, until a couple decades ago, supported several dairy farms but few businesses. The arts community around L-A is growing, as is the diversity of race, class, and gender within both towns. "Good fences make good neighbors" is still the maxim here, though, as Robert Frost wrote; the tradition of East Coast stoacism and independence is strong here. The French-Canadienne culture remains vital to the cities' roots, while new settlers from Somalia and elsewhere bring fresh ideas to the area. Clean air, the powerful Androscoggin River flowing between the two "towns," and plenty of parks, lakes, mountains and nearby recreational areas makes Auburn a fine place to raise a family and enjoy the outdoors. Crime, especially drug related, is a problem here, and the population tends to be older, since many young people leave Maine Read More
