We traveled to the woods of Western Maine in late July for a weekend at Northern Outdoors, an all ages adventure resort. Located in The Forks, Northern Outdoors is best known for white water rafting adventures, but for our young crew (ages 9-up), we decided a self-guided paddle down the lower portion of the Kennebec River was the best option.

Visitors can choose from traditional camp sites, condos or rustic cabins like this one.

Float trips down the Kennebec begin in the afternoon, so our family had plenty of time to explore the area (more on our hike to Moxie Falls in a later post). The kids also enjoyed the pool that’s located on the grounds. CP#1 and #2, along with their cousin C, had a blast making up crazy jumps and playing in the water.

We were excited to learn about the opening of the new Portland Science Center last fall, and since then, it’s been on our bucket list of places to visit. The center was designed to create an atmosphere of entertainment and learning, which is something we can totally get behind!

The latest exhibit, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, caught our attention immediately. MP has long been fascinated by the story of Titanic and she was eager to share it with the kids and her nephew, C, who was visiting from California.
