Newport has long been considered the "Gateway to the Moosehead Region" in the Sebasticook Valley region of Maine. Located in Penobscot County at the intersection of all the area's major highways, Newport is a very pretty town that is easily accessible for travelers. It's also home to beautiful Sebasticook Lake - over 4,000 acres of the lake are included within the confines of the town. The lake provides many recreational activities including swimming, boating and fishing, and in winter, snowmobiling and dog sled racing are popular. It is also considered a prime area for birdwatching. The town of Newport offers convenient services and amenities for visitors, with a vibrant downtown, unique shops and restaurants and an interesting historical society museum. The entire watershed area of Sebasticook Lake is a growing, prosperous region that makes a lovely vacation spot, or an attractive place to live and work. One note of historical interest - in 1992, an 1,800 year old fish weir was discovered in the shallows of the Sebasticook Lake, confirming that this was a popular gathering place for pre-historic travelers as well.

Newport Weather & Climate

Central Maine , in the area known as the Maine Highlands, enjoys four distinct seasons. The Penobscot Valley region has plenty of clear, sunny days in summer, with nights cool enough to provide a welcome relief from the warm days. Brisk, sunny days and cool nights in September prepare for what is the favorite season for many in Maine. The spectacular colors of fall draw lots of visitors to the area. Temperatures continue to cool down through October and November, with wintry weather returning around Thanksgiving. Cold weather settles in around Thanksgiving. January and February are generally the coldest months of winter. Below zero temperatures are possible, but infrequent and usually do not last for a very long period of time. Temperatures begin to increase in March, with a corresponding increase in humidity. The Bangor area receives approximately 85 inches of snow a year, most of it occurring in eight to ten measurable storms per year.
