11 Tiny Towns In Maine Where The Closest Civilization Is Miles And Miles Away

In some of the most remote towns in Maine, it’s not uncommon to feel completely isolated…in a good way. The Pine Tree State offers the kind of peace and quiet that those living in big cities can only dream about. And, because a whopping 90% of Maine is actually covered in forest, it’s easy to feel miles away from anything else. As communities expand and sprawl, there aren’t many places that are truly miles away from civilization, but visit any one of these remote ME towns on this list and you just might FEEL that way!

What is the scenic town in Maine?

With 483 municipalities within its borders, picking the most scenic town in Maine might not be very easy. But if we had to try, Ogunquit, located in York County would definitely be on the list. Not only does it have 3.5 miles of shoreline on the Atlantic, but there’s also the lovely Ogunquit River. Aside from taking those in, there’s also the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, the Ogunquit Playhouse, Perkins Cove, and shopping on Main Street. And then there’s Bar Harbor, located on Mount Desert Island. Surrounded by the 48,000-acre Acadia National Park, this coastal town also has frontage on the Atlantic Ocean, a gorgeous Main Street chock full of shopping and eateries, and ample opportunities to take in the outdoors.

What are the best waterparks in Maine? 

The Pine Tree State has six waterparks to choose from. In business in 1967, Funtown Splashtown in Saco has a variety of water attractions, including such notable ones like the Poseidon’s Plunge drop slide and the Tornado Thrill slide. And if you aren’t looking to get wet, there are quite a few dry rides such as Excalibur, the state’s only wooden coaster and New England’s tallest and longest log flume, Thunder Falls. Aquaboggan is also located in Saco, and has tube rides, slides, bumper boats, and even a 750,000-gallon wave pool.

What is the weather like in Maine in the summer?

They don’t call it “Vacationland” for nothing. Summer in Maine is just about perfect. You’ll have temperatures that range from the upper 70s to the 90s, depending on where you are in the state. Places like Portland will be warmer than places like Fort Kent, located close to the Canadian border. But not to worry if any parts of Maine are too warm for you, there is close to 3,500 miles of coastline within and more than 6,000 lakes to enjoy.
