|MAINE - AROOSTOOK
Comprising Maine's northernmost regions, Aroostock is
the place for adventure! Whether hiking in the mountains
or camping out while exploring in the great Allagash Wilderness,
there is something for everyone year-round in the north.
Know as the "Thousand Lakes" region, in the
Summer all of your freshwater activities can be enjoyed
in Aroostock: Boating, Sailing, Fishing and Swimming.
There are hundreds of miles of Maine's best Snowmobiling
Trails to entice you into a return visit in the Winter,
The area also contains some of the greatest farm country
in the U.S. and produces over a million tons of potatos
per year. Many of the farms offer tours and pick-your-own
specials along with the farm-fresh produce for sale so
that you can experience first-hand the great tradition
of the American family farm.
There is much Canadian influence in the area as it juts
up into southern Canada and, as Aroostock was one of the
settling grounds for the exiled Acadians, there is a decidedly
Cajun air to many of the towns and activities as well as
a big Scottish influence from their neighbors in Nova Scotia,
quite noticeable in the architecture.
Aroostock is probably the least commercialized of all
of Maine's regions and offers you an intimate look at the
best of what Maine has to offer.
