You Can See The Entire Solar System In An Unexpected Place In Maine

Mainers have long believed that the world revolves around Vacationland. At least it does for us! If the rest of the world doesn’t agree, we recommend they take a visit to The County where they might find proof that we’re right. Tucked up in Houlton, visitors will find a unique attraction that is largely missing from the guidebooks. For a unique experience that most visitors to Maine don’t see, check out the solar system model which can be driven in about one hour! Click here for the directions, but keep in mind that some of the planets sit in fields rather than businesses with addresses. Regardless, this should give you a good send of where to drive.
