Maine Just Got An Awesome National Monument – And It’s Breathtaking

In August, Maine received its newest National Monument – Katahdin Woods and Waters. While its creation was (and still is) controversial among some, we felt it was important to highlight this region and the park for all that it provides in the way of beautiful nature and access to Maine recreation activities. Even better? It’s completely free to visit!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
