Made up of 13 buildings, this seafaring village is the oldest maritime museum in Maine. The museum has a vast collection of boats including commericial fishing boats and recreational watercraft.
We came here from Rockport and we were so glad we did. Interesting to learn about the numbers of captains of merchant ships who came from Searsport. Incredible. And to see the beautiful objects they brought back from Japan and China, to see how they lived. We learned about Maine's role in the revolutionary war, about its liberation from MA--200th anniversary in 2020, saw lots of boats and fishing equipment through the ages, houses, the church. The exhibits were beautifully laid out in several buildings. Some hands on. And interesting and knowlegeable guides. Glad we went.

On our way to Bar Harbor, we stopped to view the Penobscot Narrows Observatory and bridge. We had a very good view of the bridge and the Penobscot River and Bay that it crossed. We were also able to enjoy the autumn foliage and sear rock cliffs. The observatory is the tallest public bridge observatory in the world.

You enter the state park and pay a fee on the honor system. There are a few trails that lead to wooded picnic areas. Would not recommend as it was a bit overgrown and buggy. A few tables are a bit better to the left of the privately owned lighthouse. You can walk around it to take pics. There is an old bell house that was rung once upon a time to alert during fog. There are actually better lighthouses in Maine. Only go if you are in the area as we were staying in Searsport You will also see the foundation of the old small fort. The best part of the park is the pretty little beach taking a trail down to the far left of the lighthouse. Not any sea glass but a nice place to set up chairs and have your picnic there. No trash cans anywhere so take it all with you when you depart. There is also a pier further down that at times seals have been spotted. Did not see any this time.

Best fried clams i have had in the area, great cod, fries are so so but the beer is plentiful and a great assortment. When the have the skillet cookie, get one. To sum up, very good basic food in a friendly atmosphere.

Was nice to get out for a nice walk with our dogs. It's $4 per person non resident, but a nice walk about. We have been several times and will go again.

I preferred exploring Fort Knox to the bridge observatory by miles. It was really interesting and expansive! Plus, it was decorated for the Halloween haunted house that they do so it was extra creepy with all of the decorations. Really great place to explore and so affordable that you might as well!

Belfast has one of the nice city parks in all of the mid coast. It has also recently completely a sidewalk/curb renovation project that makes walking around the wharf area safer. The downtown area also has some of the best off street parking of any town along the coast. I was even able to park my truck with my camper in tow for a couple of hours to grab a bite to eat and catch a nap with no one bothering me.

Fruits, vegetables, cows, pigs and chickens happily coexist on our 80 acre all natural family farm. You might have seen our farm-stand at the farmer’s market, or maybe you’ve heard about our food hub. It’s growing often with people receiving delicious produce fresh from our farm. I'm a veteran farmer that has the homegrown by Heroes certification for all our products.
Unbelievably wonderful. Try it and get the story of the stuff from Jerry. I liked the amber. Try them all.

Sears Island is a local island accessible to walkers and bicyclists. It is serene and peaceful out there. Great spot to relax, think, write, paint or take a nap. No picnic tables and no facilities, however. The Shore is accessible and low tide can be fun.

Stopped in with adult daughter for treasures. It's not that big so you are in and out within an hour. Thought the prices were on the higher side in today's economy. No one spoke to us either.
