Where We Are

If you’re looking for the authentic Maine experience, this is it. Our stretch of the Midcoast cradles Penobscot Bay, a scenic body of water that features scores of islands, more than a dozen historic lighthouses, and quiet little protected harbors filled with working lobster boats. Our inland towns are dotted with small farms and rolling hills. This magazine is just one way to learn more about our region.

Stop by Our Visitor Centers

We have two locations: Our southern office is at One Park Drive (just off Main Street) in Rockland. We’re in the same building as the Maine Lighthouse Museum. Our northern office is on Camden’s Public Landing, a short block off U.S. Rt. 1 in the center of town. Inside both, you can “shop” maps, brochures, menus, and visitors’ guides. Consult our schooner-schedule board, find out what's happening locally, or give your dog a drink. We’re ready to welcome you.
