Enjoy a Downeast vacation in the charming seaside village of Eastport. Located on the Canadian border, this Bay of Fundy community offers a quaint harbor, restaurants & cafes, shops, music, plays, movies, art galleries, whale-watching excursions, bay-kayaking, and ferry rides to surrounding islands. Nearby attractions include picturesque lighthouses, lakes for swimming and fishing, Lubec (Maine), and Campobello Island & St. Andrews By-the-Sea (New Brunswick). Experience the bayside environment, fresh seafood, sunrises and sunsets by the water, and Fundy tides that rise and fall 20 feet twice each day. SUMMER NOTE: If summertime weather where you live gets hot and uncomfortable, Eastport makes a great escape. Located on Moose Island, the last of 3 islands connected by causeway to the mainland 7 miles away, Eastport's climate is moderated by the surrounding bay, and July and August high temperatures average in the mid-70's. AUTUMN NOTE: The seaside autumn colors here are lovely.
Other Activities: Lighthouses, whale-watching, kayaking, hiking, plays, concerts, movies, Eastport Arts Center (The checklist above includes live theater; small-town Eastport has lots of live music, too.)
