What's the smallest town in Maine?
Beddington, a town in Washington County, is the smallest organized town in Maine. The population was 50 at the 2010 census, and at last check, this number had dwindled to just below 40. It's a lovely little place, however, and definitely worth visiting when you have a chance!
While we adore all of Maine's small towns, it simply doesn't get more quintessentially East Coast than Kennebunkport. This unassuming beach town is all weather-worn boats and craggy coastlines, whitewashed homes, and unpretentious sea shacks. (The lobster rolls from The Clam Shack are particularly noteworthy, and really a must-try for any self-described foodie.) Kennebunkport has been lauded as one of the best places to live on the East Coast, and after visiting, you might just want to drop everything and move to this charming small town, too.
