Don’t worry about how to get around Maine’s Aroostook County, bigger than Connecticut and Rhode Island combined; you’ve got options! Tour “The County,” as residents call it, on Presque Island’s Molly the Trolley, a brass-detailed gem that offers visitors a monthly Museum Crawl Tour of the county’s best museums like the Ashland Logging Museum. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, don’t tip your canoe while paddling along the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, a 92-mile chain of lakes and rivers. Then, hop in the car and cruise down Highway U.S. Route 1 to view the world’s largest scale model of the Solar System. Starting with the sun at the University of Maine, the drive extends to Topfield where it ends with dwarf planet Pluto. It doesn’t get much bigger than this!
