The REAL MAINE
Discover the Maine Coast
If you're looking for the authentic Maine experience, this is it. The Rockland-Thomaston area is the entry point to Penobscot Bay, perhaps the most scenic body of water on the eastern seaboard.
Here you'll find scores of islands, a dozen historic lighthouses, and quiet little protected harbors filled with working lobster boats.
Ospreys and bald eagles nest high in the spruces along the rugged shores, puffins make the islands their home, deer browse the open fields, moose forage the wetlands, and harbor seals make their annual pilgrimage to quiet coves.
Why you should visit us
While nature is at the core, hospitality is the rule of the day. Here you'll find access to island ferries, comfortable accommodations, outstanding restaurants and galleries, first-class museums, and the retail center for the Mid-Coast region of Maine.
This is the Lobster Capital of the World, home to the country's largest windjammer fleet, and the Gateway to Penobscot Bay. We invite you to come experience The Real Maine.
