Explore the Places that makeup Maine's Kennebec valley
Maine’s Kennebec Valley is home to vibrant cities, riverside towns, and lakeside communities strung like charms along the Kennebec River. Visitors should explore them all; from the historic towns of Gardiner and Hallowell in the south, through the bustling cities of Augusta, Waterville, and Skowhegan, to the outdoor recreation hubs of The Forks and Jackman.
With nearly 5,000 square miles of land, 250 square miles of water, hundreds of miles of rivers, streams and trails it may seem hard to choose where to head first. Relax the whole week away in the Belgrade Lakes. Spend a day or two in the small towns of Madison and Lakewood. Shoot straight up Route 201 to The Forks and a whitewater rafting adventure. This year you can even celebrate Maine’s 200 years of statehood in the capital at Augusta.
