seaplane base in New England, and hundreds
of seaplanes buzz into Greenville
for the International Seaplane Fly-in
Weekend in September.
Another natural attraction at Moosehead
Lake is Mt. Kineo, a 700-foot-high
peninsula connected to the east shore
of Moosehead, though sometimes that
piece of land is covered by water. Once
the home of an exclusive and stately
summer resort, Mt. Kineo is another
great site for picnics, exploring and adventure.
Kineo is a mountain of rhyolite
that the Native Americans used to make
their arrowheads. It is about a one-mile
boat ride to Kineo from the west shore
of Moosehead in Rockwood.
Must-sees in the Greenville area include:
* The Moosehead Marine Museum offers
a collection of photographs and
memorabilia from the lake's steamboat
history.
* The S/S Katahdin, a restored 1914
steamboat ferries passengers around
the lake during the summer months.
* Annual Forest Heritage Days in
Greenville - Early August (see Moosehead
Chamber website for description).
Naturally, camping, fishing, hiking, canoeing,
rock climbing and exploring are
major components of any visit to the
Moosehead Lake area. There are plenty
of outdoors and wilderness adventure
centers open to assist in planning family
trips, and you might even consider going

on a moose safari-but, remember, pack
only your camera-no shooting allowed.
For a wide variety of shopping, explore
the twin cities of Brewer and Bangor. Of
course, shopping is not all there is to do
in the twin cities. For example, there are
several unusual restaurants located on
Bangor's waterfront and music often fills
the air as boats make their way up and
down the Penobscot River.
Just across the bridge from Bangor, is the
city of Brewer. Filled with unique shopping
and dining experiences, the city is a mixture
of historical sights and monuments.
Stop by Chamberlain Freedom Park to
experience a tribute to General Chamberlain,
and read his famous quotes.
One of the most impressive sights in
Bangor is a 31-foot, 21
⁄2-ton statue of
Paul Bunyan that is probably one of
the most photographed monuments in
Maine. You will certainly want to have
your picture taken standing next to the
statue. Everyone does!
Look carefully in Bangor and you might
just find the 1854 Italianate Villa home
of Stephen King. It's not hard to spot,
really, because an iron fence featuring
eerie cutouts and figures of animals surrounds
it.
There are several downtown tours of
Bangor available that bring the history of
the city to life and that allow you to visit
many of the spectacular homes built by
logging barons more than 100 years ago.
Just up the road from Bangor is the main
campus of the University of Maine at
Orono. Impressive collections are on display
in the many museums located right
on campus and in Downtown Bangor at
the University of Maine Art Museum.
