Our communities celebrate the values and lessons of a multi-cultural heritage that serve as their strength and foundation in a progressive, modern world. Aroostook County offers an outstanding environment in which to raise a family. You can enjoy breathtaking sunsets on nearby lakes and kayaking on dozens of area waterways. The picturesque Maine coast is within easy travel distance.
Aroostook County provides great hunting and fishing, as well as a multitude of outdoor activities, including camping, biking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, snowmobiling and downhill and cross-country skiing. The Maine Winter Sports Center was developed as a premier cross country skiing venue. The Center hosted the 2004 World Cup, the 2005 Paralympics and the 2006 Biathlon World Cup, as well as two venues in the 2011 International Biathlon Union
competitions. Rural northern Maine enjoys a four-season environment, abundant opportunities for relaxed living, welcoming friendly communities, and a variety of recreational pursuits within minutes (rather than the typical hours). A regional airport is available in nearby Presque Isle, providing multiple daily non-stop connections to Boston’s Logan International Airport.
