5 Underrated Coastal Towns in Maine


This town sits at the border with Canada’s Campobello Island, which includes a visit to the Roosevelt family’s former summer estate if you bring your passport. 


Did you visit Maine to see the coast or shop at kitschy stores while wearing a lobster bib at lunch? If it’s the former, Cutler will carve its way into your heart.

Monhegan Island

Monhegan Island might be the biggest tourist destination you’ve never heard of (if you aren’t familiar with Maine). 


While you’re here, dine at Billy’s Chowder House — one of the oldest chowder houses in Maine. If you’re craving some of the arcade action of places like Old Orchard Beach, Wells has the Wonder Mountain Fun Park.


Over on the “Quieter Side of Acadia” is the Schoodic Peninsula, anchored by Winter Harbor. However, just a few miles east, you’ve arrived at a harbor of stops in Gouldsboro.
