Very crowded even with the road construction this season but we were able to find parking at 8.30am on a Saturday. Easily walkable with lots of quirky shops.

Super cute town in Maine. During low tide walk out to the sand bar. When you're hungry, grab a lobster roll and wash it down with some blueberry ale. This is a charming town, albeit touristy, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

An absolutely wonderful small town that shouldn't be missed. There are so many great cafes, restaurants and shops. The people are wonderful too!

The town just outside of Acadia National Park and good for refueling, food, and many a cute and touristy shop when you're done with you're hiking.
