Waterville Travel Guide


While currently best known for the NESCAC member Colby College up on Mayflower Hill, this sleepy post-industrial mill town has a lot more to offer than just the White Mules. It is a great stop for those on their way up to Sugarloaf, a fantastic mountain up north, or for those visiting the Common Ground fair in Unity, Maine. Main Street, like many other small rural towns, has its fair share of boarded windows, but the local community is dedicated to keeping its roots alive and neighborly bonds tight. Barrels Community Market downtown is one of the newest additions, bringing in local craft, produce, and products for sale in one central spot. Do be sure to head up the Hill to check out the Colby Art Museum, the largest museum in Maine and one of the world's most important repositories of Whistler prints. Winter is long, and spring is swift and brilliant; those looking for an intense small-town feel surrounded by beautiful woods may find their niche here in central Maine.
