Augusta is Maine's capital city. Located in Kennebec and Moose River Valleys, the city is a gateway to nearby resort towns. One of its distinguishing features is the capitol's 180-foot granite dome that can be seen above the skyline. History runs deep in Augusta and the story of the area's natural and human history going back 2,000 years is chronicled at the Maine State Museum. Admire local gems, view artifacts from indigenous tribes and the pilgrims who first landed in 1625, and uncover more about ongoing local excavations at the museum.
The Other Portland
Located in the heart of Casco Bay, Portland is the state's largest city and known for its commercial fishing and art. The Old Port, built in the 1880s, is a shopping and dining destination spot. And since Portland is home to artists, you can pick out one-of-a-kind pieces for your new apartment from the area's many galleries, or tour master painter Winslow Homer's studio. It's impossible to refer to the region without mentioning seafood. Portland is the place to go for fresh Maine lobster and a great place from which to launch your own deep-sea fishing adventure. Haven't quite got your sea legs? Then venture over to greater Portland's many state parks such as Crescent Beach in picturesque Cape Elizabeth. You can swim, hike, explore coves and sand dunes on this 240-plus acre sandy beach. Another popular attraction for locals and visitors is the Two Lights State Park, where you can hike the rocky headlands. Or visit Smiling Hill Farm, a 500-year-old working dairy that still makes cheese, ice cream and, of course, milk. There's also a petting zoo for the kids.
If you like the great outdoors, you'll love Bangor. This is lumberjack country, with thrusting firs and freshwater lakes and streams threaded throughout the forested land. The city even has a 31-foot fiberglass sculpture of Paul Bunyan with double ax and pick as testament to its logging history. Bangor is build along the beautiful Penobscot River. Not surprisingly, it's a popular spot for canoeing, kayaking and abundant sports fishing. And for those who like to hoof it, Baxter State Park afford 186 miles of hiking trails or test your mountain biking skills at Acadia National Park. Bangor also has a thriving arts community. The University of Maine's art center is located downtown and Bangor also has a theater group and symphony orchestra.
