Finding Your Feet at the Countless Intriguing Sites of Maine

Maine boasts of the pristine charm of Castine and Damariscotta, the warm, welcoming down-to-east Blue Hill Down East community with its 18th century shipbuilding history, the city of Cutler with its great views of Canada's Grand Manan Island, and Kennebunkport with its water-lined streets and the historic resort town of Bar Harbor. Maine is also a must for those who love nature because it is home to the loveliest of villages which includes the hidden landmarks in Camden, the pastoral landscapes of Rockport and the untouched magic of Stonington.

You don’t have to go that extra mile to enjoy hunting, fishing, biking, swimming or hiking because they are all within a short charter bus drive away. The Western Lakes, the Mountain Region, Moosehead Lake and the Kennebec and Moose River Valleys are fantastic destinations for a vacation for the entire family. There’s antique shopping and unique community events near Hallowell, and exciting whitewater rafting and naturally-explorable sites all around Aroostook County. Visiting Boothbay Harbor, with its islands and stunning lighthouses, is nothing short of breathtaking, especially when there are trips to historic boats and buildings all around town. While Deer Isle offers its fair share of beauty to tourists, especially when there are views from the water on the Schooner Surprise, there are surprising twists to your trip on land too. The 1800s Portland Observatory offers insightful looks at cruising and passing ships and if you feel like taking over the reigns yourself, book yourself in for a Summer Feet Cycling Day Tour. For bird-watching, nothing beats a trip to Casco Bay. Many of the cities are famous for their pristine beaches and historic downtown areas, with streets lined with classic New-England-style restaurants, shops, art galleries and eateries. It’s a safe bet that they will leave you wanting for more long before your trip is over!
