. Spring brings the beauty of nature with blooming lilacs and fruit trees while the annual snow melt makes our waterfalls flow at peak capacity. Summer is perfect for kayaking/canoeing, hiking, ziplining, fishing, and cooling off at any of the local swimming holes. And Fall, is there anything we can write that can come close to describing the beauty of a crisp fall day when the leaves are dotting the mountains with the perfect shades of red, yellow and orange?
Bethel is also home to Gould Academy
, a small, private, college prep school; and the Maine Mineral and Gem Museum
, a world class museum focusing on the unique geological formation of Western Maine.
