    Anywhere where Route 1 doesn’t go right through the middle of it!

    Christy from New Jersey: it is difficult to choose – Christmas Cove, Moosehead Lake, the Seawall area of Acadia, Racoon Cove, near Acadia, and its view of the bubbles, but I have to go with Somes Sound and Somesville.

    We live in St. Louis, MO and visit Maine as often as we can. We are especially fond of the areas around Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor. For a great day excursion we love to take the ferry out to Monhegan Island.

    We live in Northern California now, but four special views are: Grindstone Point in Winter Harbor looking over Frenchman’s Bay to Cadillac Mountain, seeing Northeast Harbor coming down Peabody drive from Seal Harbor, the evening view to the west from North Haven Island back to the mainland and the view from Cook’s Lobster House back to Harpswell.

    The drive into Eastport and the view off the pier to Canada. No hype, no fuss, just Maine!

    Schoodic Point, located at the southern tip of Schoodic Peninsula in Winter Harbor, Maine offers beautiful veined basalt and granite rocks being battered by large waves and a great view back to Mount Desert Island and Cadillac Mountain across the bay. It is especially lovely at sunset. It is scenic beauty at its best and appeals to all 5 senses. I also love the north coast of Mohegan, Fort William Park, the Marginal Way in Ogunquit and The Bold Coast Trail by Lubec.
