What are the best small towns to visit in Maine?

While we love all of the above beautiful small tows in Maine, there's just something extra special about Kennebunk! If you’re looking for the quintessential New England escape, Kennebunk is positively perfect. With breathtaking coastal views, charming architecture, and friendly residents, this corner of Maine seems tailor-made for a day trip. Here’s more on what you can expect from your visit to Kennebunkport, one of Maine’s most charming historic towns. It’s also been ranked as one of the best places to live near the coast, and we 100% agree! We also adore Port Clyde. This postcard-perfect town is actually a part of St. George; and while it's not hidden away in a forest in The County, it sure does feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. And of course, it's home to Marshall Point Lighthouse made even more famous by Forrest Gump, and a wonderful place to visit on your next day trip in Maine!
