Visit the Seaside Paradise of Maine’s Mid-Coast

Maine's Mid-Coast Map

Maine’s Mid Coast Region stretches from Bath / Brunswick (26 miles north of Portland), along the coast northeast to Searsport on Penobscot Bay and includes the beautiful seaside towns of Camden and Rockland. See the highlighted area on the map on this page for reference.

As you travel through the popular Mid-Coast region of Maine, you’ll pass by open fields and quaint New England cottages, quiet coves dotted with lobster traps and fishing boats, and the bustle of harbor villages that look as if they were lifted from the pages of a storybook. Just as you think it can’t get any better, a turn off the main road begins a journey down the road less traveled—under a canopy of leafy trees, past fishing ponds, until suddenly, you feel as if you’ve stepped into a story, too. It’s a wondrous place to be!

Brunswick is the gateway of the region, home to nationally recognized Bowdoin College and the Maine State Music Theater, as well as a nostalgic Maine Street lined with shops, galleries, restaurants, and antiquing. Take a stroll along on the Androscoggin Riverwalk and Bike Path overlooking the mighty Androscoggin River. Or discover a world of treasure at Cabot Mill Antiques—the largest multi-dealer antique mall in Maine. More than 140 dealers are located inside Fort Andross, a beautifully restored textile mill. Enjoy a variety of accommodations, from oceanside campsites to classic hotels and resorts.

Caressed by the great Atlantic Ocean, the Mid-Coast is a seaside paradise and a visitor’s dream:


My favorite spot in Maine's Midcoast Region is Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol. It is the most awesome spot on the planet in my opinion. The lighthouse is hauntingly beautiful and the jagged rocks protruding from the shore make for fantastic photo opportunities and hours of interesting views. It's so hard to choose just one place in Maine but that's the one for me!
