Bridgton

If you're looking for a resort area that has a downtown Main Street (with charming art boutiques and antique shops), a throwback drive-in movie theater and 11 lakes and ponds, look no farther than the quaint town of Bridgton and tranquil Moose Pond. Halfway between Portland, ME, and North Conway, NH, Bridgton is also an ideal winter destination thanks to world-class skiing, and dog sled races like the annual Mushers Bowl Winter Carnival.
