Hidden Travel Gems of Maine

Maine is a lovely state, but it doesn’t have a large number of well-known travel destinations. Except for Acadia National Park, its single national claim-to-fame, there are no major tourist spots. Yet, the state is rich in opportunities for the traveler to experience interesting history, down-east culture, and/or charming villages with maritime settings.

Nubble Light — This is one of the state’s most dramatic and beautiful lighthouses, occupying its own little island offshore.

Portland — The city of Portland has a long and impressive maritime history. The waterfront area makes a pleasant stroll.

Ogunquit — The adorable village of Ogunquit is one of Maine’s most popular coastal towns. Walk the Marginal Way for gorgeous rocky coastline scenery and amble around Perkins Cove for interesting shops and restaurants.
