Maine offers a wealth of outdoor recreation both along the coast and in its inland forests, including opportunities to hike, kayak, and mountain bike. Yet residents spend more time than most doing sedentary activities (perhaps it is the low temperatures during the winter). America's oldest state, with a median age of 41.5, ranked second for time spent playing games, such as board games, cards, puzzles, and computer games. Maine residents also spend the most time using the computer and surfing the Internet for leisure.
