As we move in deeper into the summer season and the temperatures getting hotter and hotter every day, it’s time to plan for a trip to cool off and escape the overwhelming heat.

Tourists flock Maine’s coastline during the summer time. For a true escape and relaxation, head to the charming Rangeley region, a lakefront resort town in the western Maine mountains.  Enjoy different leisure activities offered by Rangeley such as nature trails, lake cruises, fishing, hunting and so much more, without having to deal with the scorching sun.
