About the Region

About the Region

The Lakes and Mountains Region is a true four-season destination. Not only is the region close, it is one hour from the Portland Jetport; it's also family-friendly, safe and affordable. The Lakes & Mountains of Maine offer a diversity of activities that will keep you as busy as you'd like. It's up to you.

Watch as each season dramatically unfolds from the many-colored wildflowers of spring into the beautiful waterways and lush sunlit hillsides of summer, from the world's most brilliant fall colors into the stunning white snowcaps of winter.

Enjoy your favorite outdoor sport or activity, and you'll probably catch a glimpse of a moose or a loon in the process. Linger awhile in our quaint villages and culturally diverse towns and cities. Visit the many craftspeople, shops, and museums.

Enjoy our special events and festivals, and pamper yourself in our varied accommodations and dining establishments. Stop by one of the region's visitor information centers or contact the Chambers of Commerce in the region for detailed information on each area. We'll let you know what bags to pack.
