What is it like living and working in Northern Maine?

Aroostook County is known as the “Crown of Maine” and what a stunning crown it is. At first look, you will fall in love with all the vast natural beauty this northern-most county has to offer:

  • If you enjoy spending much of your time outdoors, you will certainly feel at home here. Canoeing along the 92-mile Allagash Wilderness Waterway offers a unique “get-away” experience that provides an escape from civilization.
  • You may also enjoy hiking or camping in Maine’s first state park, Aroostook State Park in Presque Isle, or perhaps trekking along a section of the International Appalachian Trail that stretches from Baxter State Park to the Canadian border.
  • Aroostook boasts more than 2,300 miles of snow mobile trails—providing the best trail riding experience in the eastern United States.
  • Northern Maine also offers a plentiful array of shopping and dining opportunities. Spend a weekend visiting one of the many farm stands or farmer’s markets. Take a stroll down one of the classic downtowns, stop at a local café, or shop in one of Aroostook’s many hometown shops.
