Tips from locals
This is the busiest lobster fishing port in the country. On your drive down stop to check out some of the countless galleries along the way, and hike barred island or tennis preserve on deer isle.
Made up of one of the most active lobstering community, Stonington is located on the southern tip of Deer Island. It makes for a fantastic day trip - check out the Stonington Opera House for some culture, Old Quarry Ocean Adventures to get out on the water and the Island Heritage Trust's Settlement…
Great views and cute shops, also quite a few good restaurants for casual fare. Catch the mail ferry to Isle au Haut at the wharf! Visit the granite museum to learn about quarrying. Drive on through Stonington village to Sand Beach, public access with stunning views!
