Maine’s Mid-Coast Region stretches from Casco Bay to Penobscot Bay, encompassing miles of rugged peninsulas, picturesque islands, rolling hills and farmlands, quaint villages and vibrant towns along the Gulf of Maine. Tucked in amid this spectacular natural beauty are a host of oceanfront and lakeside beaches, perfect for relaxing, sunbathing, swimming and picnicking with family and friends. Launch a kayak and explore the coastal waters, surf cast for striped bass and bodysurf the rolling waves. Paddle a canoe on a placid lake, cast a line for brook trout and salmon and take a hike around the quiet shoreline. Pedal a bike down scenic country roads or on wooded mountain trails. Check in to a comfy B&B, hotel, motel or cottage and dine on lobster, clam chowder and strawberry shortcake. Or settle in to a cozy park campsite, a roaring fire and a meal cooked on a charcoal grill. The Mid-Coast has the sandy beaches you’ve been looking for and a host of fun and adventures to make your vacation a memorable one.
