Where To Visit

Aroostook County, Incorporated in 1839, is divided into four distinct regions, each with its own unique geography and culture. The area of Aroostook is more than one fifth of the area of the State of Maine. The vast majority of the region's population lives within 30 miles (48 Km) from the New Brunswick, Canada border to the east. Ten percent of this vast area consists of cultivated farmland and is located in the more populated areas of the County. The remainder of the county consists of working forest or its majestic lakes, rivers and streams. Aroostook is home to some of the most beautiful small towns in America. The county's population just under 74,000, there are on average only 11.1 people per every square mile. However it is the people and culture of Aroostook that truly makes it special.
