Maine itinerary: Bath, Portland and Rockland

0

Maine Office of Tourism provided these itinerary ideas that take groups along the Maine coastline. Celebrate hundreds of years of maritime heritage and livelihoods that depended on the sea, such as boatbuilding and lobstering.

“From the mountains to the sea, Maine rolls out the welcome mat for groups,” said Jennifer Geiger, communications manager for Maine Office of Tourism. “With 3,500 miles of coastline, Maine has a rich maritime heritage that lives on today in working waterfronts, fishing villages and historic downtowns, boatyards that harken back to the era of tall ships and award-winning, locally-sourced seafood.”
