This Island Might Be Maine’s Best Kept Secret And You’ll Want To Visit

As the weather warms up, it’s time to think about how to enjoy the great outdoors of Maine. While many people will head to places like Acadia National Park or The Kennebunks, we love hopping on a local ferry to one of of the many offshore islands that dot the state’s craggy coastline. There are many popular ones from which to choose, but we recommend you head straight for this less-visited island sitting just a short ride from Portland.

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Another reason to head to a Maine island? Great food! This restaurant can only be accessed by boat and it’s SO worth it!
