Maine is vacationland because….~~

 

My favorite place in Maine, other than Cutler, is downtown Millinocket. If you keep reading you will find out why, in three simple reasons.

 

Reason One: My first reason is the places. Yes, it may smell like mill smoke there, but I like it because if you go downtown, nothing has really changed. Most of the buildings are still brick and eroded. It has a few blocks filled with just houses, and a lake that you can swim in and sometimes camp there. The have a lot of places to eat including my favorite, Pelletier Loggers Family Restaurant. I have only been there twice on snowmobile,and once in the truck, but I still know that’s my favorite because of the good food and nice people. There is hotels, restaurants, golf courses and much more to do there. That is the first reason why I chose downtown Millinocket as my favorite place.

 

Reason Two: The second reason why downtown Millinocket as my favorite place in Maine, is because of the scenery. If you look around, you can picture what it must have looked like way back when. Most of the buildings are still brick and some of them aren’t in use, but in my opinion, that is what makes it so beautiful.

 

Reason Three: The third reason has to be the population. There isn’t many people in downtown Millinocket and I like it that way. Many people do. It is a lot less noisy and less drama when it’s like that. There may not be as many jobs, but thats because most people work in the mill or Somewhere else in Millinocket not just in downtown.

 

Reason Four: The forth reason is the stories my parents have told me. You see, my parents used to live there before they had us kids. The told us stories about when they lived there. One time they even took us in the truck to go see where they used to live.Dad lived there before he met mom and then they moved there after. We walked through downtown and it was so cool that I knew it was my new and forever favorite place in Maine. When I get older, I might even think of living there for a while, but I will definitly move back to Cutler because that was my home town and I like it there just as much as I like it in downtown Millinocket.

That is why I like downtown Millinocket and, I hope after reading this, you will like it just as much. Or at least go and visit there to see if your feeling the same thing I am when it comes to that town.
