Augusta is the state capital, located in central Maine along the flowing Kennebec River. Its population of about 18,000 residents makes it the ninth largest city in Maine. Augusta is situated along the I-95 corridor and it is approximately one hour from Portland and Bangor, and about 40 minutes from Lewiston/Auburn.
Central Maine is home to Augusta, the state’s proud capital, as well as several other smaller cities like Waterville, Gardiner, and Lewiston/Auburn. There are dozens of beautiful lakes scattered throughout the region and the Atlantic coastline is less than an hour away.
Lewiston and Auburn are neighboring communities in southern Central Maine. These small cities gained prominence in the late 1800’s as the preeminent shoe manufacturers in the United States. While the shoe industry is no longer prominent, these bustling communities remain popular because of their friendly residents and great location along the Androscoggin River.
Lewiston is home to Bates College, which is considered among the best liberal arts schools in the country.
Monmouth is known for its family-friendly atmosphere, its access to 6 lakes/ponds, and its support of local businesses. Located about 20 minutes from Augusta and Lewiston/Auburn.
Located on the banks of the Kennebec River, and right off of I95, Waterville is a great place to call home!
