The heart of the thousand-mile-long Maine seacoast (map) is a natural wonder: long peninsulas jutting southward into the Atlantic, with natural beauty everywhere.




Here's a map so you can locate these towns:


Surrounded by coastal resort towns, Brunswick is the cultural center of this part of Maine: both Bowdoin College and Maine's only professional music theater are here. More...


A 10-mile drive along US 1 north from Brunswick brings you to Bath, a fine town of colonial and Federal houses built when Bath was a wealthy seaport and shipbuilding center. More...


Is Wiscasset "the prettiest village in Maine?" Decide for yourself as you drive through on US 1. More...

Boothbay Harbor

This is the principal town in a region of vacation settlements which include Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, East Boothbay, Southport, and Ocean Point. More...

Monhegan Island

Monhegan is noted for its interesting paths and walks, and that's mostly what there is to do—there are no roads. More...


The "Twin Villages" serve as commercial centers and mark the gateway on US Route 1 to the peninsula with a dramatically-sited Pemaquid Lighthouse at its southern tip. More...
