Turner is a rural town of 6000 covering a large, historically agricultural area west of Augusta – and directly north of Lewiston and Auburn - home to more than 100,000 people, and many amenities. This diverse community has an active arts community of music and theatre, organized sports for every age, and amazing educational offerings. Lewiston is the site of Bates College, a top ranked Liberal Arts college. Lewiston also hosts an annual Balloon Festival that draws thousands of families for the fun.
The Turner area offers scenic hiking/biking trails, placid lakes and peaceful rivers (and waterfront homes), plus award-winning golf courses. You can enjoy the waterways via kayak or canoe, motorboat or pontoon – whatever speed you enjoy. Winter sports here include cross country skiing, snowmobiling and snow shoeing – plus easy proximity to several wonderful downhill ski resorts, including a popular facility right in Lewiston.
