    Maine Acadian Culture


Things To Do

The Maine Acadian culture can be found everywhere in the St. John Valley in Northern Maine's Aroostook County and across the St. John River in New Brunswick.

During the summer there is a host of indoor and outdoor activities to participate in. Fall is ablaze with nature's pallet of red, orange, and yellow. Winter activities such as snowmobiling, ice fishing, snowshoeing, ice skating, and cross-country skiing abound in "the County."

Drive the St. John Valley countryside and discover the rich heritage that is the Maine Acadian culture.
