Come Explore Life in Waterville

Tucked within Central Maine on the banks of the Kennebec River, Waterville is a city surrounded by natural beauty. The historic Two Cent Bridge offers pedestrians an incredible view of the majestic river, especially in the fall when the trees along the banks turn red, orange, and gold. Three boat ramps make it easy to access the river for an unforgettable fishing or kayaking trip.

But outdoor recreation isn't the only reason why residents love Waterville. This city of more than 16,000 residents is steeped in history, arts, culture, and education. From private universities to a historic downtown, Waterville has everything your heart desires!
