Maine is known throughout the country for its small coastal towns with that quintessential New England look and feel. While it’s important to remember just how diverse the land in Maine really is, you can’t deny the beauty of the rugged coast. And that’s why we love visiting the small towns that lie along the water. If you’re looking for some local adventures, consider checking out these beauties and supporting their restaurants and other local businesses. Simply start on US-1 and head north!
