One of the nicest seasonal venues to visit in this Northwoods recreational region is an event where the historical and former limbering community of Greenville Maine located at the southend of Moosehead Lake lights-up and throws out the proverbial Red Carpet as it becomes the...More

Going to Bar Harbor followed by Moosehead Lake, looking for suggestions for Lobster spots and good local spots. Also need must see suggestions. We are already scheduled to go to Acadia.

Answers will depend a bit on "when" you're coming, because some things in both Bar Harbor and Moosehead are seasonal in nature. And there are multiple possible answers for both locations. I'll list my personal favorites and hope other respondents will do the same. Bar Harbor "must see/do" includes: ** a stop at the Acadia National Park Visitors Center (in the village of Hull's Cove on Rt 3 just before you get to Bar Harbor itself -- watch for signs on your right as you climb the hill...More
Where to bring European company during their stay in... (5 Replies)
I've got company coming VERY soon from England. They'll be staying for a month and I'm making a list of where to take them for some fun. I've got Freeport down, a trip to Moosehead lake for a ride on the Katahdin Ferry, a couple of waterfalls to hike to, a day at the beach..maybe Old Orchard, maybe a day in Bar Harbor but I don't know that area at all. So now what? Any more ideas, anyone?

Where are you in Maine? You should definitely do Acadia. Maybe Camden-Rockland area. If they've never been to Boston, and they're from England, they would probably love to see that. I always love to show my British friends the monuments that mark the bravery of the patriots, and the cowardice of the red coats. Maybe check out Newburyport in Mass and Portsmouth in NH too. Portland. White Mountains. So many things.

My husband and I have around 4 days to spend in this area (Moosehead Lake, Millinocket, etc) . Some destinations we have in mind include Mt. Kineo, Gulf Hagas, day trip to southern Baxter State Park as well as either a canoe expedition of Allagash Waterway or whitewhater rafting on Penobscot. We enjoy the outdoors and want to do some camping. Where would be a good hub to stay to explore the area? Peaks Kenny SP vs Lily Bay SP vs hotel or B&B around Moosehead Lake? Also would like day...More

If you are fit and reasonably prepared (packing water/ snacks/ clothes for weather changes) the ultimate day hike is Mt. Katahdin. It's a long day of walking and quite a bit of boulder hopping at one end, but probably the most memorable walk up mountain day hike on the east coast. Small by western standards, the thing about Katahdin is there are no switchbacks. You walk straight up and walk/ butt slide straight down. Scenery is breathtaking, the odds you will see numerous weather...More
