You’ll Absolutely Love A Ride On Maine’s Majestic Mountain Train This Summer

Many people only think of the coast when they think of Maine, but one of the jewels of the state is our forested inland and lakes. Often warmer than the coast and always uniquely beautiful, western Maine offers a landscape unfamiliar to many who simply visit Maine for a week at a time. If you’ve spent a lot of time in coastal Maine, think about taking a trip inland. And when you do, take a trip on this special mountain train!

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:
