Parks & Nature
Maine has some of the very best state and national parks, but Moose Point in Searsport is a treat. Paths through the woods and shore, gazebos and picnic areas.

Hard to describe...an island, hiking trails, no cars. Must see to understand!

One of the most beautiful views close to Searsport. On a clear day you can see Blue Hill, Acadia, all the islands in Penobscot Bay, the Camden Harbor...just gorgeous, gorgeous. Good hiking trails, but wear good hiking boots. It isn't a good hike for slippery sneakers. You can also just drive up, look around and drive down.

Shopping
Searsport is a haven for antique seekers. Every block or two, there is another antique store or mall. This is just one, and a good one at that!

Love this local bookstore. Not just books, although the owners are wonderfully knowledgeable about all things books. Lots of local authors see this as a must stop especially during the summer.

A clothing store but more...cards, gifts, and a wonderfully relaxing experience. Next to Delvinos. Shop at Coyote Moon, and then go next door for Delvinos' delightful Italian offerings.

Getting Around
This is a godsend. Maine is a driving state. Hard to get around without a car, but we have found we can get from here to there with Concord bus lines. Particularly like the "Logan Express" from Searsport to Boston's Logan airport. We have used it dozens of times in order to avoid driving the four hours from the mid-coast to Boston.
