As Maine's capital city, Augusta's rich history combines smoothly with a smart cosmopolitan edge that is unique to the Pine Tree State. History buffs will enjoy the Maine State Museum, a massive complex that traces the state's outdoors, agricultural and industrial heritage; while the Margaret Chase Smith Museum and Library in nearby Skowhegan chronicles the life of one of Maine's pioneering women politicians. Neary Old Fort Western is a stark reminder of Maine's frontier roots dating back more than 300 years ago. Both children and adults will enjoy the varied activities at the Children's Discovery Museum. This area has plenty of outdoor family activities in key areas such as Moosehead Lake, Lake St. George State Park, the Augusta Nature Center, and the Sunday River Ski Resort. In the evenings, top off your visit with some theater in the nearby village of Monmouth, offering many show-stopping performances.
