This is the heavily wooded and mountainous interior section of Maine, and heaven for people who love outdoor sports like swimming, boating, fishing, and hiking. The dramatic Rangeley Lakes, Sebago Lake, and Androscoggin River rule for water sports. IN fall, Fryeburg Fair puts on one of the biggest agricultural fairs in New England, and it has a large and enthusiastic following. In winter, skiers and snowboarders flock to the giant quartet of Sunday River Saddleback, Shawnee Peak and Sugarloaf, among other first-rate ski mountains. Families and kids enjoy Thorncrag Nature Sanctuary in Lewiston and the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray. Waterfront lodgings and golf resorts offer plenty of activity for the whole family.
