Why We Love Standish
Located along the shores of Sebago Lake, the small town of Standish, Maine, offers many family-friendly attractions. One of the first stops to visit is the Steep Falls Wildlife Management Area. It offers groomed hiking trails, woodlands, wetlands and canoeing areas. The nature area has restroom facilities and is open from sunrise until sunset.
Take the whole family for a day of fun at the Seacoast Adventure. Race each other on the go-karts, ride the 100-foot sea swing or play a few rounds of miniature golf. During the summertime, the Adventure Cove water park area offers water slides, a wave pool, sprinkling fountains and more.
People who enjoy musicals or theatrical productions could get tickets to a performance at the Schoolhouse Arts Center. Each year, community actors put on plays and productions for children, families and adults. The Schoolhouse Arts Center is handicap-accessible.
History buffs and architecture fans should visit the Marrett House. This house was built in the 1780s and is the home of the area’s first parson. Constructed in a Greek Revival style, it now houses a museum with original and replica furnishings. Scheduled tours and self-guided tours are available. Each October, the Marrett House has an open house and arts festival.
Pick up an antique or handmade gift at the Sebago Lake Trading Company. It has some hand-crafted replicas as well as original items from the area’s first settlers. The Sebago Lake Trading Company is located close to several restaurants and delis for a relaxing afternoon visit.
