Things to Do

Maine’s Midcoast region offers breathtaking vistas and amazing coastal adventures for the vacation traveler. The sandy, often crowded beaches of the Southern Maine coast give way in the Midcoast region to a diverse, rocky coastline. Discover the rich shipbuilding and fishing heritage of Maine’s coastal villages. Enjoy a lobster dinner on an outdoor restaurant deck while watching the lobster fisherman unload today’s catch. Go kayaking along the inlets or head out to sea on a sailing ship or whale-watch adventure. The rugged coastline, with its winding, twisting roads, attracts an array of artists and their galleries are fun to find and explore. For the antique lover or shopper, the villages of Camden and Rockport offer a variety of eclectic shops and studios.
