There’s A Fairy Gnome Wonderland Hiding In Maine And It’s Simply Magical

We all know that Maine is a magical place. It’s easy to experience this side of the state during a quick trip outside at the right time of day – think foggy mornings and purple sunsets. But, there are some corners of the state that offer an extra-special dose of whimsy. You’ll find one of them on this island just off-the-beaten path in southern Maine.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
