What Life Is Like Inside The Tiny Island In Maine With No Cars

With technology and connectedness, it’s hard to truly feel like you’re in a place that’s slow-paced. Even small towns that promise a “laid-back” vibe come with Main Streets, attractions and taxis looking to shuttle tourists from one museum to the next. But, Monhegan Island is different. The tiny island is about ten miles from the mainland and can only be traveled to by boat. One of its most defining characteristics is the lack of cars and paved roads.

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!
