Living in New England, we know we're lucky to live in one of the best parts of the US.

Over the years, countless studies have directed high praise towards our region. Last year, a WalletHub study announced the best small cities in the country, and eight New England towns made the list. Our area has also been highlighted for having some of the most magical winter wonderland townshottest zip codes in Americamost underrated destinations in the country, and restaurants that made the New York Times' Restaurant List.

Of course, questions concerning the "best" of anything are clearly subjective, as everyone has their own definition of what designates something as "the best." You might currently live in the same community that you grew up in, and have a soft spot for the area as a result. Maybe to you, the best towns have larger populations and more businesses rather than being rural. Or, you may have a preference for places close to the ocean or mountains. Regardless, everyone has their own perspective on things, which makes this topic all the more interesting.

So, let's look at the 13 Maine cities with the best downtowns, according to local readers on Facebook.
