Hotels and Travel

Our convention headquarters is the Augusta Civic Center. At 49,000 sq. feet, it is the largest meeting facility in Maine, with acres of free parking, and is centrally located to four railroad museums operating prototype two-foot steam !

Since the convention headquarters does not have an attached hotel, we have put in place reserved room blocks and negotiated rates at six fine hotels within four miles of the convention headquarters. Click here for a map of hotels convenient to the convention headquarters in the Civic Center. Nearby Waterville also offers numerous additional hotels and other lodging options with negotiated rates.

Choices for your travel to Augusta include automobile, air, and rail.

For the non-rail members of your party, our convention headquarters is also close to the Atlantic coast, the mountains, numerous museums, and the shopping attractions of Freeport and the mid-coast regionĀ  (L. L. Bean and much more), with none of the traffic snarls of the big city !
