Things to do in Maine

By the Sea

Much of Maine’s culture comes from the sea. Soak in some stories from the past at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath. Or stroll the working waterfront of Casco Bay in Portland for more real-life exhibits. Then head south to Cape Elizabeth to visit the Portland Head Light, the oldest of the state’s 60+ working lighthouses.

Beautiful Byways

The state boasts four National Scenic Byways—the Old Canada Road, Rangeley Lakes and Schoodic—that will take you past incredible archaeological, cultural, historic and recreational sites. But the biggest and, the Acadia Byway, is an All-American Road everyone should experience at least once. It feels like you’re driving on a confusing maze of roads while circumnavigating Acadia National Park—but that’s the point: It’s the drive, not the destination.

Natural Inspiration

Take your time to enjoy the hidden wonders of this gorgeous coastal landscape and head to the top of Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the North Atlantic seaboard. Plus, from October to March, it's the first place in the U.S. to welcome the sunrise each morning. Nature also has inspired artists like Homer, Hopper and Wyeth as well as writers such as Longfellow and Thoreau—and museums throughout the state celebrate their incredible works.
