The Kennebec Valley

The most beautiful region in Maine all year round!

The Kennebec Valley travel ways, embraced by lakes and forest, are rich in history, culture and natural beauty. These travel ways lead to spectacular waterfalls, scenic hikes along the Appalachian Trail and East Coast Greenway, tours of historic districts, forts and museums, four seasons of festivals and fairs and the adventure of whitewater rafting, snowmobiling and sport fishing.

You will love the people and places that make our region unique. We are proud of the Kennebec and Moose River Valleys and would love to share its fun loving and hospitable spirit with you. Whether it’s a family cottage rental in the picture perfect Belgrade Lakes area, a leisurely walk through an apple orchard, exploring one of our pristine lakes, antiquing, taking in an evening play at one of our historic theatres, or the thrill of a whitewater rafting trip in The Forks, we have something for everyone.

Travel the historic path of Benedict Arnold and his men on our National Scenic Byway, the Old Canada Road, as it winds its way north to Quebec City, Canada, along the mighty Kennebec River. The Byway offers breathtaking views and access to agricultural fairs and festivals, wildlife, boating, and snowmobiling. Our quaint riverfront communities of Hallowell, Gardiner, Waterville, Skowhegan and our beautiful capitol of Augusta, home to the Maine State Museum and Old Fort Western offer a variety of shopping, heritage and culture.

Be it a day trip, a hike with your dog, a week with your family, a romantic weekend, a fishing trip or a shopping and spa getaway you will be sure to find something for everyone on your vacation. We believe every season opens a new window for memories to be made. Come visit with us and create memories!
