Maine’s MidCoast Region offers an experiential and exploratory tour of the state’s “best-of” list. Driving along Maine’s MidCoast, you’ll be able to explore the peninsulas that sprout from the mainland like fingers and reach towards the sea. Discover your own favorite lobster shack or cove, find the perfect lobster roll, and watch the lobster boats approach the harbor, stacked high with traps.

As you continue your journey through the MidCoast, one option is to turn off at Camden Hills State Park and head towards the winding road that disappears up the mountainside through a tunnel of colorful trees. What makes the MidCoast so intriguing is the variety of vistas on display at each bend in the road. At any moment the tree line can recede, revealing a jaw-dropping ocean view, a glimpse of a hidden cove cradling a gorgeous seaside village.

In the fall, your drive might pause at a rolling patch of pumpkins, leading you to a farm-front vegetable stand along the road to wineries, tucked among the rolling hills throughout the region.

In the winter, you might discover a vibrant painting in the window of a cozy art gallery in Rockland, or the lively new brewery next door to it on your way to the Camden Snow Bowl.

A drive through the MidCoast Region during the summer months can lead you to a picnic at Reid State Park, kayaking in Boothbay Harbor, or a full-on oyster feast in Damariscotta and Newcastle.

Flanked by the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath on one end and the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport on the other, Maine’s MidCoast gives you a sense of the maritime values that have shaped the culture and heritage of this region.

There are so many possibilities along the MidCoast that you can’t experience it all in one trip. And that’s a good thing. Because you’ll love coming back to Maine and exploring every stop along the way.
