Here’s The Ultimate Terrifying Maine Road Trip And It’ll Haunt Your Dreams

Maybe it’s the mist that rolls in off the Atlantic. Or the mystery of what lurks in the vastness of the Great North Woods. Whatever it is, Maine can be a truly creepy place. With Stephen King counting himself as one of Maine’s natives sons, it’s no wonder we have a reputation for horror. And while we can confidently say that Pennywise the Clown is not skulking through our sewers, the fact remains: sometimes truth actually is stranger than fiction.

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to be your Tour Guide of Terror, planning a full-day road trip through some of Maine’s creepiest locales – from Down East to the edge of Aroostook. You can find the Google Map right here, which you can use to plan your own trip… if you dare.

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/

And there you have it. We’re so glad you made it through in one piece. Do you have any scary stories to tell?
