Just a short drive northeast from Portland along Route 1 or scenic Route 88, leads you to the charming village of Yarmouth. Stop in at one of their eateries for a leisurely meal or quick bite to fuel up for antique hunting along the tree-lined streets and historic homes.
Outdoor enthusiasts savor the Royal River Park with its open spaces, picnic areas and summer concerts. Adjoining the park is the Royal River Walkway. Clearly marked and pedestrian-friendly, the trail weaves along the Royal River offering fresh air and opportunities for vigorous exercise or quiet reflection. The Walkway connects to the Beth Condon Memorial Pathway creating a system of trails that allows for convenient access to the shops along Route 1.
True to its roots as a seafaring community, Yarmouth has a marina and boatyards. Explore sheltered coves of the Royal River or venture out to nearby Casco Bay for a scenic tour. After spending the day with harbor seals, sea birds and enjoying the salty breezes, relax dock-side with a gourmet meal and good company.
Each year in July, organizations throughout the community gather together to welcome visitors and kick off their fundraising efforts during the weekend-long Yarmouth Clam Festival. The festival features loads of food, live music, carnival rides, arts & crafts, and, of course, clams.
