Between Brunswick and Searsport the region boasts 1,500 miles of coastline, from dramatic rocky points to warm sandy beaches, creating innumerable opportunities for touring by land or water. The pace slows as you travel between the towns and villages linked by Coastal Route 1. These have preserved their quaint New England flavor and traditions, while boasting shops, restaurants, galleries, theaters, museums, and many other amenities for visitors and locals to enjoy. The arts are woven into the fabric of life in MidCoast Maine where the rocky coast and snug harbors have inspired generations of artists, artisans, writers, and musicians.
