Maine is such an unusual place, and you'd never expect it.

Before I moved here from Boston, Massachusetts, I thought Maine was going to be the laxi dazie type of town that probably turns a blind eye if you're still in the bar past 3 a.m.

I was so wrong. I quickly realized this place seems to have an agenda and rule book of its own, and people just... happily follow it.

I remember my first night out in the Old Port here.

I'm 30 now, so I can't even say the words "old port" without getting flashbacks of late-night Five Guys before they closed their Portland location down, and too many jello shots.

I will never forget when I was first told;

Last call in Maine is 12:45 a.m.

I thought it was a joke. I remember laughing at the bartender and waiting for her to tell me the "real" last call hour. As the lights came on around 12:55 a.m., I quickly realized how "real" this rule was.

As my time in Maine went on, here's a bunch of other things this state does that may shock you as much as they shocked me.

I took to Facebook to see what surprised others after they moved to mine and compiled a list.

Here are 20 things that shock people after they move to Maine:
