I have lived in Sidney a little under a year. It is in between Augusta and Waterville. There isn't much to do here, it is very quiet and not much goes on. It is nice to live in a quiet area at times but I do wish there was more to do!

I live here in Sidney and commute to school four days of the week, it is very nice here. A small rural community just outside of Augusta.
I enjoy the views in Maine and the loving people.
