Explore the rugged coastline of Maine through the quaint village of Harpswell. Located just miles away from Brunswick and Freeport, where rolling fields meet pounding surf, the dramatic scenery of Harpswell has inspired generations of seafaring families and artists.
As you travel along the winding roads, keep an eye out for roadside seafood stands, antique shops and artist galleries. Restaurants and wine shops invite travelers to sample farm-fresh cuisine and homemade treats while the works of 20 talented Maine artists at the Sebascodegan Artists Gallery provides a small sample of the creative spirit of this region.
Summertime fun is celebrated in the small town of Harpswell each year. Join the community for food, music, a parade and fireworks at the Harpswell Festival.
Cruise along the coast in a kayak or windjammer and experience life on the water. Travel the short distance from the southern tip of Harpswell Neck to Eagle Island for a tour of Arctic Explorer, Admiral Robert E. Peary's summer home and enjoy the 4-mile trail around the island.
As you drive - or better yet, boat - along the shorelines of Harpswell, be sure to take in the sights of the granite-slab cribstone bridge (connecting Bailey and Orr's Islands) whose unique design allows the tides to ebb
