Billed as “Maine’s Most Beautiful Mountain Village,” Bethel, Maine, sits in the heart of the gorgeous northeast. Most Americans picture the tremendous autumn colors, as countless maples and other trees turn the northeast into vibrant hues. But there is much more to this area.
Located in the Androscoggin River Valley and not far from White Mountain National Forest , Bethel offers a wide range of year-round activities. Depending on the season, you can enjoy fishing, canoe/kayak trips, hiking and biking, moose watching (yes!), snow skiing, golfing, and more. And of course, in autumn, lose yourself in the abundance of radiant colors throughout the area.
Pick some apples at any of the numerous locations; savor the northeast in one of the more tasty and nutritious ways. Bethel offers that touch of quaint, hometown atmosphere as well. Stroll the town and visit an art gallery, boutique clothing stores, and the historical society. In winter, you can rent ski gear for your visit. Grab a bite to eat at one of the village’s family-owned restaurants.
