Maine Could be Hot Spot in '07


According to a recent article in the bangordailynews.com, Millincocket, Maine is going to be one of the top 10 travel hot spots for 2007. White water rafting is a popular activity in the area, with trips going doen the Penebscot River daily during summer months. Reviews from travelers who made Millincocket a destination this year all agree that it is a great destination for those who love the outdoors.

Matt Polstein of the New England Outdoor Center knows that the information and Trip Advisor website are important resources for travelers. More and more visitors are wanting outdoor trips when they visit the area. The New England Outdoor Center saw increases on business across the board. Lodging increased 50 - 100 percent over the summer months, and rafting trips saw an increase of 12% overall.

The New England Outdoor Center offers rafting trips, vacation lodging, canoe and kayak school, moose tours, nature tours, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and much more. It is a great destination and resource for anyone looking to visit the area. Obviously, Trip Advisor (an Expedia subsudiary) thinks the area is hot, and will only grow in the coming years.
