Dew Haven Zoo

One of two animal preservation and rescue zoo’s in the state of Maine. Located in Mt. Vernon has seasonal wildlife that features over two hundred animals including many exotic cats.

Other animals that you can expect to find in this remote destination includes Tigers, Bears, Birds, Goats, and Monkeys. The price is extremely reasonable and the tour is always a hit with the children.

Whitewater Rafting the Penobscot

Whitewater rafting is an electric way to spend a summer afternoon. Nobody does it better than Northern Maine.

With multiple companies competing for your business, they are sure to have an offer that is within your budget for a once in a lifetime experience.

Both companies provide, an excellent meal, video and photo packages after. Opportunities to swim and play in up to class 4 rapids on the Penobscot river, more specifically West Branch.

Double Top Mountain

Doubletop Mountain located in Piscataquis County, Maine, part of Baxter State Park is a hikers dream.

This is not for an amateur climbers idea of a fun time. The extremely high elevation of 3,498 Feet — Doubletop is all rough terrain — that gradually becomes more difficult as you climb. It is classified as a very strenuous trail that can only be finished by scaling huge boulders.

Once again, like Mt. Katahdin, watch out for windy conditions, and the brutal cold because the weather can change immediately. The other issue is that the two peaks are not very wide, as you see in the pictures below — creating a dangerous platform — with views that can compete with any other mountain in Maine.

Estimated time is about 6 hours to the top and back down with times varying depending on your speed.
