Beautiful. Jordon Pond is my favorite spot. You can get a carriage horse drawn wagon nearby at the Wildwood stables or hike the carriage trails. Really fun place. Sand beach is nice too. Sun rise on Cadillac is beautiful too.

Really easy hike..on the ocean, so nice views. In the summer a great spot for having a picnic or party. In winter, you park outside the gates and walk or snowshoe in.

Excellent events throughout the summer. Tour the old sea captains houses and displays of how they lived. The museum has a gallery too with planned events. Learn about Searsport's maritime history. Very interesting. Searsport was a major hub for the Tall Sailing ships before the steam engine with cargos from the orient. The downtown architecture still supports the old sea captain mansions.

Essentials
Also Steamboat gas where Dunkin Donuts is located has a little market, and is a great place to fill up your car and select a very good car wash too. Across the street from Toziers is a really great laundry. Toziers makes a very good pizza too. Keep in mind this is not a pizza Mecca like New York or Chicago. For the best New York Pizza, you'll need to go to Ellsworth to Finelli's. Wow, they are great.

Excellent food menu. Relaxed sports bar. Family oriented. Sit with the locals or in a booth or window front table. I love their appetizers and their fish sandwich with fries. They also have local and specialty brews. But so many good things. Try 'em all.

They have the best pizza locally. Their specialty is greek pizza, but they also have sandwiches. They are also nicely priced. Don't waste your money on the place called, Somewhere in Belfast. Although if you like wines and salads. Somewhere is a good place but so pricey. Get out your charge cards if you plan to go to Somewhere, but Alexia's is really the place where the locals go and is a delight.

Sightseeing
The fort has the best Halloween event. It is an historic landmark, but the main reason for going is to go up to the Verona Island bridge observatory. There you can view the islands off Maine coast as well as the western Maine Mountain ranges which houses Mt Katadin. You can also view Acadia National Park from there. The scenery is awesome.

Galleries and eclectic shops. Try Vin O Liveo (misspelled), for a great mix of oils and vinegars. The cheese shop next to Chases is really good. Also Yo' Mamma's Home has all kinds of interesting items, you won't want to miss. Downtown is the Belfast Co Op for all organic food. There is a wonderful toy shop, Out on a Whimsy for the coolest toys. Neil Parent's gallery is a must. His photographs are awesome. And on Sat from 9 to 2 pm, the Farmers Market is a must as well. You can get anything there from shucked Damroscotta Oysters, best in the country, to fish tacos, to farm fresh veggies and elixirs for healing, jewelry, pottery, etc. Live music. Tables to eat with view of harbor.

Not just the Harbor Cruises, you can check out many great sailing vessels there and go out on an afternoon or sunset cruise. Awesome. There are many great restaurants there too. Some of the cruises have wine/cheese tastings. Some overnight have lobster bake. Some allow you to bring aboard food. and drinks. You can find cruises in Belfast at the harbor, Rockport harbor as well.

A beautiful view of the area on top of the mountain. A nice moderate hike too. Climb up the stairs to a lookout in the old fort tower. I love Battie. I recommend with your family to take the hike up the mountain through the woods. It is really a fun hike.

Everything Else
Downhill night skiing. During the day, tubing is really fun. If you have never skied at night, this is a great experience. Bring your picnic basket or snacks. Really no restaurants close by that I can recall. It is easy to get to from Searsport.
