<h2>Home Is On The Northeastern Tip Of The Pig</h2><p>What, you don't get it? The US is shaped like a pig, sorta. Haven't you noticed?

Or thereabouts.</p><p>Edgecomb's petite population and diminutive demographics belie its open ended small town charms. Not only is it close to the ocean shore, no doubt teeming with lobster and the like, but its socioeconomic cred is strong. That's the funny thing about small New England towns.

With the not so pleasant pleasantries aside, let's get down to business.</p><p>So there isn't much to say about Edgecomb that can be uttered without the experience of actually being there. The city's website looks like something from 1999, so if you've got a slow computer you may actually have reason to celebrate, at least this once. With a simple menu consisting of town ordinances and an event calendar with surprisingly more happenings than you'd expect for a town of merely 1,000 souls (what is it they could be so earnestly planning for?), it won't take long to navigate its depths. We say this not in jest, but only with the best of intentions that you'll find Edgecomb a tried and true, dyed in the wool kind of place able to satisfy your eagerness to just relax.</p><p>Or paint. Earl Cunningham, folk art painter extraordinaire and former resident of Edgecomb, was certainly a fan of the place. Why would he decide to make it his home for so many years if he believed otherwise? Folk art's mission is to depict in a fairly straightforward, even \\childlike\\ (though not child-ish) fashion, the ways and means of all activity in the artist's purview. For excelling in this Cunningham garnered much praise - and much paint. Oddly enough his work is disproportionately housed way down yonder in Orlando. But anyway, learn more about Cunningham and his northern Atlantic coastal paintings here.</p><p>Edgecomb's total acreage is pretty impressive at 20.8 sq. miles, what with its paltry population and all.

Outdoor shenanigans is a no-brainer 'round these parts. But when it comes to something on the more indoor tip, well, this is where you'll likely discover something a bit more novel.</p><p>The Musical Wonder House seeks to preserve age old musical instruments in the way the Scotch preserve whisky, and in either case the result is straight up intoxicating. It's chime time folks, so put your best ears forward and get ready to take \\note\\ of the fun to be had.</p><p>Nearby Boothbay is home to the Boothbay Railway Village, where you can take in the sights and even sounds of old train cars and fanciful wannabe automobile type things like Horse Drawn Taxis, otherwise famous in the US via the romantic movie genre's exploitation of NYC's Central Park. It looks as if the most current vehicle on display is a 1964 Cushman Truckster Hot Dog Wagon. But just as you're well advised to avoid the gum found in an old pack of baseball cards, you'd best steer clear of any meat found in this hulking old three wheeled gem.</p><p>You've now scratched the surface of what to do in and around Edgecomb.
