Maine Travel Regions


Division Map

Aroostook County Region- Aroostook County is referred to as "The County" by locals since it is the largest county in the state. Its vast wilderness, countless streams and potato fields exude an undeveloped aura rarely seen today.
Down East / Acadia Region- The vast Down East Region offers sweeping views of Canada and the North Atlantic.
Greater Portland and Casco Bay Region- One of the most populated areas of the state, Portland offers numerous cultural and outdoor recreation opportunities.
Katahdin / Moosehead / Penquis Region- This gorgeous area of Maine is the last stronghold of wilderness in the Eastern United States. Studded with beautiful lakes, wild running rivers and gorgeous forests are characteristic of this region where Baxter State Park makes its home.
Kennebec and Moose River Valleys Region- Known for its peaceful lakes, churning rivers and wonderful moose sightings, Kennebec and Moose River Valley is located inland above the busy metropolitan area of Freeport. Winter and summer sports abound on the region's lakes and land.
Mid Coast Region- Mid Coast Maine may be the busiest of the coastal vacation spots with literally thousands of tiny rock laden coves and islands along the Atlantic Ocean.
Southern Maine Coast Region- This area is known as the gateway to Maine. It has an urban feel that is unlike the northern inland and upper coastal regions.
Western Maine Mountains Region- Western Maine Mountains is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Whitewater boating, fishing, hunting and winter sports abound in White Mountain National Forest, Rangeley Lake and Sebago Lake Areas.

Attractions - The eight travel regions include Southern Maine, Greater Portland & Casco Bay, Mid Coast, Down East, Western Maine Mountains, Kennebec and Moose River Valleys, Katahdin / Moosehead and Aroostook County. Each area offers a unique array of activities and sights for the visitor. Beginning in the lower Southern Maine region, the area is heavily populated and lined with elegant mansions. Traveling northward, the population thins and the temperature drops while wildlife becomes more prolific and the roads become more sparse.

Recreation - Every recreational taste can be satisfied in Maine. There are sprawling crystal clear fishing lakes, rushing trout waters, mountains to climb, paths to travel, rapids to negotiate, sandy beaches for sunbathing, scenic drives offering spectacular views, snowmobiling, ice fishing, downhill and cross-country skiing and more.

Climate - The climate in this northern state is cool year round. Summer high temperatures average near 75 degrees F, but often reach 90 degrees in the southern portion of the state. Summer evenings are cool and a sweater is usually necessary. Fall is usually dry with crisp days and cool nights. Expect nighttime temperatures to reach into the high 30s, especially in the northern regions of the state. This weather brings spectacular foliage colors between early September and late October. Winter can be long and gray in Maine, but recreation opportunities abound to beat the cold. Average daytime temperatures from December through March remain close to 20 degrees F. Nighttime temperatures can dip below zero. Spring is usually wet with snowmelt and rains. Moderate temperatures between 45 and 60 degrees F can be expected during the day.
