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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
