Visit Bethel Area

... and learn, and shop, and relax, and relocate, etc!

The Bethel area abounds in activities all year long! It is Maine's premier four-season recreational destination, located in western Maine, in the Androscoggin River valley, and the Mahoosuc Mountains. Explore on your own or hire a guide. Spend days or even weeks exploring -- from our classic New England village to "off-the-beaten-track" special places.

Get OUTSIDE - in a wide variety of outdoor pursuits...something for every age and ability! A to Z: apple picking, bicycling, canoeing or kayaking, dogsledding, eating, fishing, golfing, hiking, ice skating, jogging, lobster, moose watching and scenic drives, nature walks, outdoor fun, photography, quarries, rockhounding, skiing and riding, snowmobiling, shopping, triathlon, visiting, White Mountain National Forest, waterfalls, XC skiing and snowshoeing, yoga. Zip up your bags and come!

Get INSIDE -- the area's plentiful amenities will back up your experience -- or make the amenities your reason for visiting! Pamper yourself in a spa, relax in a restaurant, laugh in a pub, find a shop or gallery to delight...

Your Maine vacation should include a visit to Bethel, Maine's most beautiful mountain village.
