A few minutes north of Orono on Route 178 is the riverside community of Old Town, famous for the classic canoes made by hand here since the turn of the 20th century. The company’s now owned by Johnson Outdoors of Wisconsin, but it’s a point of Maine pride that the original factory is still here, cranking out top-quality watercraft. Next door to the headquarters, this is more store than visitor center, but there are some deals—plus a big pool where you can try out a few models.
