Rangeley has been named the #2 best lake towns in the U.S. The “The 16 Best Lake Towns in the U.S.” list comes from digital travel magazine, Trips to Discover.

Here’s what they say about Rangeley:

Rangeley is a beautiful town in Maine that sits at the heart of the Rangely Lakes region, a four-season paradise in the mountains of western Maine. Located on Rangeley Lake, it’s surrounded by wilderness while offering lake cruises, swimming, and fishing for landlocked salmon or brook trout. Or, paddle across the water while watching for moose, eagles, and herons. The mountainous terrain offers scenic trails that bring breathtaking views and you won’t want to miss a tour of Maine Mountain Maple plantation, which turns locally tapped sap into syrup.

Another New England location came in at #3, Burlington, Vermont.

Here’s the entire list.
