Life in Northern Maine

A comfortable pace of life. Streams, woods, fields, peace and quiet. Aroostook County offers a flavor of life that is distinctly rural, yet abundant with amenities often found only in larger cities. The County is a region that truly has four seasons.

The world-class Nordic Heritage Center has welcomed the very best biathletes in the world for World Cup competition, and this resource is available free of charge to the people of Aroostook County. Bigrock Mountain and Quoggy Jo Ski Center offer downhill skiing. The snowmobile trail system in Aroostook County is among the very best in North America.

In the warmer months, residents can visit the North Maine Woods, one of the largest working forests in the United States. Camping and hiking opportunities (including some mountain hiking) can be found in the woods and at Aroostook State Park. Biking, boating, fishing, and hunting are popular summer and fall activities.

Despite the rural nature of the area, residents have access to services typically reserved for more urban areas, including an airport with several commercial flights to Boston each day, a mall, and a large number of local and chain restaurants.

Many of our local school systems are award-winners. The University of Maine at Presque Isle, Northern Maine Community College, Husson College, and University of Maine at Fort Kent serve the higher education needs of the region.
