Nestled into an idyllic New England landscape, the Camden Snow Bowl's tubing hills, cross-country trails, and challenging mountain slopes entertain winter warriors of all ages and skill levels. Tracing its history back to lively community winter fests in the ‘30s, the Snow Bowl's rugged hillsides, glassy ponds, and primeval pine forests have entertained thousands of rosy-cheeked visitors over the years. If visitors make it 1,300 feet up Ragged Mountain, they’ll also be rewarded with a view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Today, the Ragged Mountain Recreation Foundation ensures that sustainable development practices help future generations enjoy the Snow Bowl's slopes, tracks, parklands, and resort areas for years to come. Adults and kids alike learn their way around the powder during skiing and snowboarding lessons, preparing them to explore the park's four chair lifts, 400-foot toboggan chute, and 850 feet of vertical ski slopes. After winter's chill dies away and the snow machines go on summer break, hikers, boaters, and other adventurers arrive at Ragged Mountain to mountain bike across rustic trails, fish in Hosmer Pond, and find cool unmatched ski gloves just lying around for free.

Shaking hands with a starfish, choreographing a puppet show, and drafting a system of roads and bridges in a single day no longer requires a college degree or being a Nickelodeon executive's son. At Children’s Discovery Museum, hands-on, informative exhibits engage kids' bodies and minds, meting out a palpable understanding of the world under the guise of role playing and interactive fun.

Children can introduce themselves to their coastal counterparts in the Touch Tank for Kids, where crabs scuttle and sea cucumbers swim away from predatory pickle jars. A bona fide Maine campground, equipped by L.L.Bean with tents, backpacks, and live animals, makes a great stomping ground for active legs and imparts the importance of conservation. A functional theater provides a venue for young directors to stage puppet shows and musicals, and bank counters and restaurant kitchens spark imaginative scenarios as kids learn the basics of counting change, preparing healthy meals, and coercing ketchup out of glass jars.

In The Rum Diary, a recent Hollywood release, Johnny Depp worked with an unlikely costar—Schooner Heron’s 65-foot wooden schooner, which graced the screen in the role of Sanderson’s yacht. When not avoiding the relentless flash of paparazzi, the boat traverses Penobscot Bay’s pristine archipelago of islands during three styles of daily summer cruises. The cruises run the gamut from tours covering local history and wildlife to BYOB adventures, on which guests can watch the sun set and the fish turn on their night lights. US Coast Guard-certified captains helm these journeys, drawing on expertise from their days sailing the Gulf of Maine, the Caribbean, and the trans-Atlantic passages.

With flight ratings of Airline Transport Pilot, Advanced Ground Instructor, and Commercial Pilot among them, the seven-man team at Airlink LLC can wear a lot of hats. In a given week, they might take first-time pilots aloft for a half-hour introductory flight, conduct a ground school lesson for students working toward a Private Pilot’s license, and whisk sightseers away on scenic flights over the Carrabassett Valley or Sugarloaf Mountain. Based out of the Waterville airport, the FAA-approved 141 Flight School employs a fleet of Cessna and Beechcraft airplanes – including one seaplane – as well as a flight simulator that assists the learning process by eliminating variables such as adverse weather conditions and backseat-driving seagulls.
