Augusta is the capital of Maine. If you have planned a trip to the place and wanted to know about the best about the best spots in the city, then you have landed on the right page to check information. I have been to the city and have explored every nook and crannies. So, have a look at what I find interesting in Augusta.
The city is located beside the Kennebec River, and the place has a rich history too. If you want to check the history of this city and its culture, then like me, you can also start your trip to Augusta by visiting favorite museums in the town like Maine state museum, Melville Weston Fuller memorial. And if you are a nature lover, then start exploring the city from Whitefield Salmon Preserve, the beauty of this place is fantastic and even a day will seem short to you, especially if you are coming from a metropolitan city. The greenery present here will rejuvenate you and refresh you from within. The other such places are
- Allen Whitney Memorial Forest
This forest is flat and maintained by the New England Forestry Foundation. The wood has some great trails, hilly areas, and terrains. The trails are less severe and thus offer adventure to people coming here.
The Messalonskee Lake is the favorite water body in the Maine Belgrade Lakes region. This lake is lovely, and it is bordered by the towns of Sidney, Belgrade, and Oakland. This lake is the natural one, and it is the result of the continental collision and glacial scouring. You can enjoy numbers of water activities here.
The other spots that I like most in Augusta and you too should not miss during your trip are Viles Arboretum, Ladies Delight Lighthouse Lake Cobbosseecontee, Capitol Park, Discovery museum for children.
