The One Island Everyone In Maine Needs To Visit This Fall

There are more than 4,600 islands located off the coast of Maine. Some of these are inhabited year-round, some offer wonderful tourist activities and others are tiny and often overlooked. Each one adds to the character of Maine’s craggy coastline and, even those that cannot be visited easily, are important to our geography.

While these coastal islands feel so very Maine, many people forget about our inland islands (those located in lakes and rivers) and the ones that might not actually be islands at all. These are the ones that might feel like an island, but are actually connected by a small strip of land making them easily visited and totally worth the trip. One of our favorites is Georgetown in Sagadahoc County.

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/
