This area is nice, there isn't much that is too special. It is right in central Maine so you don't have to travel to far to get to a city, or nature! For the most part, the town feels pretty safe, especially compared to across the country.
I absolutely love Kennebec County, I feel everything and everyone is just so nice. I moved here from CT and honestly, I was not sure what to expect. Everyone says it is more expensive to live here but I have noticed it is less expensive.
