North Windham Reviews
Weather in Maine is beautiful! Summer, spring and fall are gorgeous and winter is nice for a little while but it is the longest season and it's definitely too long. But there are some aspects of winter that are enjoyable. Unlike some areas of the world Maine gets all four seasons and they're amazing to experience here. Natural disasters are not often here. The worst thing we get is snow storms, but they usually aren't too devastating. We rarely will get remnants of a hurricane that traveled up the coast but at that point it isn't powerful enough to cause extensive damage.
There are a lot of chains in my hometown, Applebees, Friendly's, and of course all of the typical fast food places. However, there are locally owned restaurants in the area and also smaller restaurant chains that are specific to Maine such as Thatcher's or Gilbert's Chowder House. There are a couple of pizza places and sandwich shops that provide great local food for cheap. There's a variety in different types of food, there's Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Southwestern, Italian, and the classic American restaurant/cafe. The night life isn't crazy, there's one "club" in the area but it's just a bar for older people to go to. There are a few other bars in the area that people do go out to, however if one were to go "clubbing" they would drive 20 minutes into the closest city.
Being a high school student I have a part time job, also all of my friends have part time jobs in my hometown. Most of the time kids will get a job either at the movie theatre, the grocery stores, or the fun park in my town. However, many teens still get jobs at coffee shops or sometimes even working at daycares or in mechanic shops. It's harder for adults and parents to work in town just because most professional degrees would take place in the city, twenty minutes away. However, many people do have parents that work for oil companies, the smaller scaled doctor's offices around town, doing manual labor work, or just in one of the many businesses around the town. However, it is more typical for adults to maintain more professional degrees outside of the town.
