Augusta (although chilly in January) is a fun and delicious travel site. I found the Best Western Plus Civic Center to be a great deal. It was a good rate for a comfortable living area with microwave and refrigerator, business center with a REAL exercise room (free weights) but more than anything absolutely great staff. I found the desk staff and housekeeping to be really helpful friendly and outgoing. Look for Marc and Jim at the front desk and they will provide loads of great information about things to see but even more where to eat. Each place I went to was better than the one before and I have developed a great relationship with Augusta Seafood which is now shipping my fresh seafood to Texas!!! Ask for Bob Benedict!!!!
Life is good and I look forward to returning to Maine, even in January!More
