The Kennebec Valley is a convergence of outdoor splendor and recreational fun splashed with vibrant cultural footprints and rich history. The granddaddy of all Maine regions, the Valley spans from Kennebec County, which includes the buzzing capital city of Augusta, to the mountains, rivers, and lakes of Somerset County, all the way to the Canadian border. Stretching over 5,000 square miles, there is incredible diversity in things to do, places to go, and sights to see. There’s literally something for everyone, making The Kennebec Valley an ideal place to visit!
