South Paris and Norway

Maine's Lakes and Mountains


    McLaughlin Garden
    South Paris

    In 1936 Bernard McLaughlin began planting what would become one of Maine's most beloved gardens. A century-old Maine farmstead with massive stonewalls and huge barn provided a unique background for his sophisticated collection of trees, woody shrubs, and perennials. There is a wonderful garden gift shop and many programs and events.


    Lunch at Nomad Café on Historic Main Street in Downtown Norway, a must! There's free wi-fi too.


    Roberts Farm Preserve

    This former farm is now part of the Western Foothills Land Trust. There are many trails for year-round activities.

    See what's growing or cooking at Pietree Orchard in Sweden.
