Most Underrated Places In Maine
The website Thrillist.com listed the 'Most Underrated Places in Every U.S. State'. The point of their post was to feature a location that might not be as popular as it should be. For example when you think of Maine, the obvious choices are L.L. Bean and Old Orchard Beach. So what did they select as Maine's most underrated place?
It is the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.
Here's what they say about the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, 'Why you need to go: There are exactly zero people living in this historic waterway that cuts through the heart of Maine’s timber country. Which means that from the comfort of your canoe, you can enjoy the towering fir trees for miles without interruption. For 92 miles, in fact, as that's how far the waterway stretches through lakes, rivers, ponds, and streams. Naturally, it's an ideal spot for a summer float-camping trip.
Must-do: For a little more adventure, hit the whitewater at Chase Rapids downstream from Churchill Dam .'
I'd like to have our listeners add to the list of most underrated places in Maine.
I'll start the list with a few of my own.
1. Range Pond State Park in Poland. I grew up near there and it is a small and family-friendly state park with hiking trails, a nice little beach and a picnic area with BBQ grills.
2. Naples. The causeway is awesome. You can ride the Sebago Queen or take a seaplane ride. There is also a very nice mini-golf course in Naples.
Alright, add to the list!
