About the region
Maine wouldn’t be Vacationland without the kind of pristine places you’ll find in the Lakes & Mountains region. Whether you like to cast a line, stalk a stag, or set your sites on tamer targets—like a clear slope of fresh-fallen snow—this area has all the prey and powder you’re angling for.
You’ll find it hard to believe that the peaks, rivers and glacial lakes that abound here are so easily accessible from Maine’s largest city. Every season offers a world of adventure, from those long days fly-fishing to the thrill of the hunt when those first leaves start to fall. And when the flakes fly, the Sunday River, Saddleback and Sugarloaf ski resorts offer some of the best skiing and boarding you’ll find anywhere.
When it’s time for a little civilization, there’s a rich cultural heritage to turn to here as well. There’s dishes to dig into at local blueberry festivals, “chowdah” cookoffs, and a thriving arts scene to scope out riverside in the twin cities of Lewiston & Auburn.
