As I am sure you have already noticed, the Town of Fryeburg has a lot to offer. Our location is convenient and the environment around us is beautiful. We are nestled between the larger municipalities of North Conway and Bridgton, and serve as a major gateway into the State of Maine. Larger cities such as Lewiston, Auburn, and Portland are only an hour away. Eastern Slope Regional Airport is located right in Fryeburg allowing for air travel to and from Fryeburg.

Fryeburg’s beautiful setting hosts a variety of recreational opportunities to be enjoyed. Whether it is a quick walk up Jockey Cap, a more difficult hike on the trails of the adjacent White Mountain National Forest, a bike ride on the Mountain Division Rail Trail, a canoe trip down the Saco River, casting a line in one of the numerous ponds, or just a scenic drive taking in the mountain views and picturesque agricultural land, we are sure you will find plenty to do in your spare time.  Check out the expansive recreation fields and the new David & Doris Hastings Community Center for many recreation and community oriented options.
