Mid-coast Maine, with its quiet fishing villages and serene harbors is famous among artists, writers, birders, and boaters for its rocky shoreline, gorgeous ocean vistas and landscapes, terrific walks (from Mt Batty in Camden to Birch Point State Park's rocky shoreline), its beaches, ponds, and ferries to Penobscot Bay islands of Vinal Haven and Monhegan, among others. Lighthouse enthusiasts will enjoy the Owls Head Light, Port Clyde's Marshall Light, and the mile-long pier walk to Rockland's Breakwater Light. The very walkable towns of Thomaston, Rockland, Rockport, and Camden have abundant art galleries, new and used book shops, antique stores, cafes, restaurants, and music, film, and performance venues. The nearby Owls Head Transportation Museum features a unique collection of antique planes and cars (check for weekend events); the Farnsworth Museum is famous for its Wyeth collection, and features 19th-20th-21st century Maine artists. The area is well-known for its many art galleries, its puffin and island tours by schooner out of Camden, as well as farmers markets, golf courses, fishing, biking, hiking opportunities, lighthouse cruises, sea and river kayaking and more.
