See our lighthouses up close and touchable, hop a ferry to one of our beautiful islands and explore Monhegan, Isleboro, North Haven or Vinalhaven on foot, with bike or with car. Stroll our delightful harbor towns along turn of the century waterfronts where you will find world class restaurants (some with award-winning chefs), great shopping, unique boutiques, art galleries, museums and so much more!
And did we mention LOBSTAH? We are located in the heart of the lobster catch capital of the world and you will find great seafood everywhere (and you can even go out on a real lobster boat and watch a catch!)

For more adventure travel “down east” (up the coast) to Bar Harbor, Maine for a grand day trip to Acadia National Park, one of America’s true treasures, or drive an hour down to Boothbay Harbor to the remarkably stunning Maine Botanical Garden, one of the best in the country.
