The Gems Of Route 26 Will Take You On An Incredible Trip Through Western Maine

We absolutely love road trips. You may have noticed that they’re one of our favorite topics to write about. From coastal trips to inland trips to byways and scenic highways, Maine makes it pretty easy to get out and enjoy the scenery. Just when we thought we were out of road trips to send you on, we came across an idea in Western Maine that was new to us. Despite being a state highway, Route 26 will take you through the most lovely countryside and bits of the real Maine. Even better, it features some fun culture, history and nature stops along the way. It’s short, entertaining and can be done in a day. Although, we’ve added a spot to stay overnight to give yourself a destination. Click here for full directions and read on for the details!

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:
