Why Everyone In Maine Should Visit This One Tiny Town

Hallowell has been on our must-do list for a while now, so when we had a chance to visit after a trip to camp in Winthrop, it was a no-brainer. The 6.1-mile town (actually, it’s considered the smallest city in Maine!) is located on the banks of the Kennebec and offers tons in the form of food, shopping and summer festivals!

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 great thing about Hallowell? It’s got tons of fun outdoor activities just outside of town! Check out the Kennebec Rail Trail (included in this article about great Maine trails) and this beautiful Hobbitland, just minutes from downtown.
