Covering over 87,000 acres of Maine territory, this monument is a nature lover's dream. Here, you can do everything from fish and canoe to hike and bike through lush woodland and scenic rivers and streams.
Katahdin is the right destination for anyone who wants to go off the grid. According to the Maine Office of Tourism, there is no cellphone service here, and few amenities. That means you'll have to bring your own tent, water purifier, gas, and maps (since your GPS won't work here).
And fun fact: Roxanne Quimby, co-founder of Burt's Bees, donated $80 million worth of land and future financial support to make this monument possible.
