The 180-foot State Capitol and Fort Western are Augusta must-visits. The former takes you on a historical tour through the hall of flags, the Senate chamber and the main house, while the latter catapults you back in time to the French and Indian war period and the Revolution at the oldest standing wooden fort east of the Mississippi River. Maine State Museum packs in a lot of history, while families with kids will love the interactive Children’s Discovery Museum and the Kennebec River Rail Trail for scenic hiking and biking. If you’re keen to see more nature, visit the Viles Arboretum and Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary.
The nearby towns of Hallowell and Fairfield are perfect for a day of antiquing, perusing art galleries and visiting historic mansions. You’re also just an hour’s drive from the glorious woods and water adventure of the Rangeley and Carrabasset Valleys; and the beautiful maritime town of Portland, where you can indulge in a famous fresh Maine lobster bake at Boone’s Fish House & Oyster Room.
Half an hour’s drive south of Augusta, you’ll arrive at Cobbosseecontee Lake, while 10 miles north you’ll find yourself in the stunning Belgrade Lakes Region, home to a chain of seven sparkling lakes where pontoon boating, fishing and delectable food are the order of the day. Don’t miss the Village Inn’s renowned 12-hour roast duck. The Augusta Lakes are renowned as an angler’s paradise and many visitors return to holiday here year after year. Of course, you don’t have to be a fishing fan to enjoy the great outdoors! The Kennebec Valley has a whole host of invigorating pursuits to enjoy, including canoeing, kayaking, horse-riding and golf – plus Nordic and alpine skiing come winter.
One of our favourite spots in the city is the Battery, just to the east of Signal Hill. This pretty-as-a-picture neighbourhood’s colourful clapboard houses seem to cling to the cliffs at the entrance to the harbour. Another local area worth a visit is the old fishing village of Quidi Vidi, which is home to a battery of the same name. This National Historic Site is a reconstruction of a British battery that was originally built to protect the region from an overland attack in the late 18th Century
