Aroostook CountyAroostook. The name comes from a Native American word meaning “beautiful river.” So clearly, Aroostook is a river. It’s also a valley. A county. And, it might surprise you, a state. But not a state like the other fifty. Because more than anything else, Aroostook creates a state of mind, unique to each visitor. That’s what happens when you have such a vast and timeless swath of America open for exploring.
How vast? Aroostook County, Maine is the largest county east of the Mississippi, larger than the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. No wonder Mainers refer to it simply as “The County.” As counties go, this is the king. Which leads us to Aroostook’s other nickname, “The Crown of Maine.” Because of the way it sits atop the rest of the state.
