Maine Coast South
Maine Coast, South, RV Camping, Sightseeing, Museums, Nature Preserves, Shopping
A trip along Route One as it parallels the Maine Coast will offer plenty of shopping and museums.
You could also fish for trout or striper, or cruise on a tall sailing ship while still keeping close to attractions that appeal to each member of the family.
Maine’s South and Mid Coast presents you with a hundred miles of beach and estuarine marsh between Kittery in the south and Camden in the north.
In the south you can visit the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, the Auto Museum at Wells, the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum in Portland, and the Shipbuilding Museum in Bath. A little further north you find the Owls Head Antique Air Museum in Rockland, and the schooners of Camden. And all these attractions are available without ever straying far from coastal Route One.
Many inns and B&Bs along the coast have made your visit to museums, malls, and beaches easier by operating shuttle services.
Most attractions are open from mid-May to mid-September with some staying open till the end of the foliage season in mid-October. Many Inns open year round for ski season and Christmas shoppers.
This little stretch of Maine's extensive coast has for additional diversion two of Maine’s largest outlet malls: Kittery, one mile of outlet stores along Route One, and Freeport, an outlet theme park and home of LL Bean’s 24-hour retail store and a hundred other places to shop.
On the Maine Coast South you can find shipbuilding museums, brass lamp Stanley Steamers, and narrow gage steam engines.
A ride along coastal Route One will also put you near ocean beaches, amusement rides, ocean-side golfing, and outlet shopping malls.
