A harborside haven in Corea

Drawing visitors with its coastal charm, the fishing village of Corea sits on the Gulf of Maine, an area dotted with tiny islands and picturesque lighthouses. Mornings in town can be spent discovering the burgeoning local art scene and watching the lobster boats bobbing in Corea Harbor, while daytrips lead to a nearby national park for scenic hikes along the rocky shoreline and flower-filled meadows. With a range of Corea vacation rentals available, you're sure to find the perfect spot to take off on coastal adventures, whether you seek a private woodsy cabin or a cozy harborside home with views of the sunset over the water.

Coastal road trips in Corea

While some of the best views of the coast come from boat rides out into the Gulf of Maine, you'll also discover amazing sites driving along the Schoodic Scenic Byway. This 29-mile stretch of road runs from Prospect Harbor, where a picturesque white lighthouse sits between two coves, up the coast of Frenchman Bay, ringing around the Schoodic Peninsula and crossing parts of Acadia National Park along the way. Pack a picnic lunch to make a day of it as there are plenty of spots to stop and admire mountain vistas, classic New England architecture and darling seaside fishing towns.

Adventures in the parks around Corea

One of the top national parks on the East Coast, Acadia National Park is a short jaunt from Corea, perfect for daytrips into nature. There's more than 35,000 acres to explore here, from the sea to the soaring mountains, and miles of trails to get you started, whether you're a beginner looking for short, shorefront paths or a serious trekker ready to climb rocks and summit peaks. Kids will love the interactive exhibits at the nature center that teach about the park's flora and fauna, and the seasonal ranger-led boat trips where you can get hands on with some of the sea creatures that live here.

Fall foliage in Corea

Autumn on the Gulf of Maine paints the shoreline in vibrant shades of red, orange and yellow as forests in Acadia National Park and beyond change their colors for the cooler months. This fall foliage season is an excellent time to visit Corea. The crowds drawn to the water by the summer heat dwindle but temperatures typically stay pleasant enough in September and October to enjoy the great outdoors on scenic hikes and bike rides. Nights are a bit chilly during this time so why not look for a Corea vacation rental with a fireplace for cozy evenings indoors.

Hitting the trails in Corea

Just a mile inland from Corea, a few hundred acres of wetlands and hardwood forests shelter a variety of wading and water birds. The Corea Heath Preserve and parts of the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Complex here offer a chance to hike along the habitats in search of rare plants, beaver dams and migrating fowl. Close to a mile of paths make a loop through the preserve, a quiet respite just off the main road that seems buried in the wilderness.
