The wifey and I will be driving from NY to Brunswick (mostly for the beer at Lion's Pride) and staying over night. Then we will be heading to Owl's Head for the week. I wanted to stop and see some stuff on the way to OH. We won't be stopping in the Boothbay peninsula, as I have done it to death.


People keep raving about the Pemaquid Peninsula, what would you recommend we check out, besides the lighthouse? What about Bath? Wiscasset?


Wouldn't mind getting in some photography, museums and historic homes are cool too... And of course good food and good brews.


Thx

There's more than enough at Owls Head to keep you occupied for most of the day. I think I would go there first, if you really want to see it, and take in some of the other sights on the way back.

Bath is a cool little city with an interesting downtown and the Maine Maritime Museum just a mile downriver on Washington Street. The local department store, Reny's, is always an adventure. Bath also has an Irish pub, Byrne's, as a good beer stop.

Pemaquid has the lighthouse, a nice beach, and the archeological dig at Colonial Pemaquid. Christmas Cove is scenic, and you can pick out your own lobster for lunch on the pier in New Harbor. We were in Damariscotta just two weeks ago and liked the small town atmosphere. Check out Maine Coast Books on Main Street.

Which do you guys think is a better day trip, Monhegan Island, or Isle au Haut. Just want peace and quiet, and some nice hiking trails. Thx.

Visit The Farnsworth Art museum in Rockland, espyou love the Wyeths!
Forget about Monhegan. If you have time, take the ferry from Rockland to Vinalhaven Island. The most beautiful ferry ride in the world!
