Car: Recommended

Mid-Coast towns & villages are quaint, with homes ranging from the stately clapboard colonial to a classic New Englander to a shingled cottage on the coast or lake.

Coastal Maine was carved by glaciers ages ago leaving an architecture of mountains running to deep ocean, and to deep clear lakes surrounded by fertile hills inland.

The harbors are filled with a mix of commercial fishing boats, Maine lobster boats (Rockland is the host of the Annual Lobster Festival) Schooners (Camden, Rockport, and Rockland berth a number of classic schooners for day trips & week long journeys,) and yachts – those with the finest pedigree are launched in Maine by the very best boat builders you will find anywhere in the world.

Maine’s seawater is cold & clean, that’s why you find the best fish and lobster here. Midcoast Maine south of Rockland is made up of fishing towns – Owls Head, Spruce Head, Tenants Harbor, Port Clyde, Cushing, and Friendship have been active fishing ports supporting their families for generations.

Outdoor recreational opportunities are almost endless in mid-coast Maine, Camden Hills State Park runs from the top of Megunticook Mountain to the bold Atlantic Ocean. There are miles of hiking and biking trails, Maine’s lakes warm up in the summer for a refreshing swim. Camden, Lincolnville, Hope, and Appleton have dozens of pristine lakes, rivers and streams for boating and fishing.

Penobscot Bay has hundreds of islands accessible by boat or ferry, the Maine Island Trail – set up for conservation and public access for kayakers and boaters. Camden, Maine has a town operated ski hill, where you can look out over the ocean when skiing on a sunny winter day.

The Camden Opera House, Rockport Opera House and the revitalized Strand Theatre in Rockland bring the area wide range of cultural & musical events, humor and political debate.

Maine is host to artists, writers, and thinkers from around the world. Rockland, Maine is the site of the world renowned Farnsworth Museum and Wyeth Center and the Maine Lighthouse Museum. Rockland’s revitalized downtown and harbor is the busy with world-class galleries, shops, and restaurants. The Camden Conference on world affairs and Pop-Tech, an international technology, science & ideas conference - both bring some of the world’s great thinkers and activists to town.

The coastal town of Owls Head is home to Knox County Regional Airport, with a regular schedule of connecting flights to Boston. The Owls Head Transportation museum holds a world class collection of reare and antique automobiles, airplanes, and trains. The Saint George peninsula and its outlying islands are also home to artists, writers, editors, business executives, and retirees from many interesting walks of life.

It is the mix of the people, the diversity of the communities, and beautiful landscape that make Midcoast Maine so special.
