    Waterfalls and shipbuilding

    It's only a short drive up the coast from Portland, making it easy to opt for a Yarmouth vacation rental in the middle of Casco Bay. A fair-sized town by Maine standards, Yarmouth is famed for its waterfalls. These made the area an ideal spot for milling wheat, timber and cotton, and so the town was born. Other industries prospered around the mills, with factories making everything from paper to bricks and shoes. By the 19th century, shipbuilders made Yarmouth a hub of maritime activity and employment. Set within this historical context, Yarmouth is a charming town with much to offer.

    Beaches, rivers and parks within easy reach

    Aside from opportunities to explore Casco Bay and its multitude of small to medium-sized islands by boat, Yarmouth has a lot on offer. The town is particularly suited to those interested in history and to families with children. The long sandy beach that hugs the town is scattered with shells and rises back into grass-flecked dunes and pinecone covered forests behind it. A perfect seaside day out swimming and picnicking with the family is within easy walking distance of your Yarmouth vacation rental. Royal River and Grist Mill Parks also offer wonderful views of the falls and town.

    Awesome astronomy and world-famous clams

    Yarmouth lays claim to the largest rotating globe on Earth. Visit Eartha to see the 42-foot model and view earth as if from outer space. Housed inside a giant conservatory, the globe towers above the people that visit it. It's enjoyable and educational for children and is a must- visit when staying in a Yarmouth vacation rental. For budding historians, the Yarmouth Historical Society houses a fascinating archive of material on the local area. Yarmouth is probably most known for its annual clam festival, which happens in late July and sees visitor numbers over the weekend swell to 120,000.

    At its prettiest in the snow

    Yarmouth is best appreciated in the milder summer months of high season, when the sun shines and a cool sea breeze rolls off the bay. At this time of year, the beaches are packed and the town is buzzing with vacationers enjoying the panoramic views of Casco Bay as the sun sets. Find yourself in town at a colder time of year and you'll find Yarmouth deep in snow. It's a very pleasing sight, especially when the rivers and waterfalls that crisscross the town are partially frozen over and icicles hang from boats and buildings on the waterfront.

    Seabirds and owls on the wildflower trails

    Littlejohn Island Preserve and Spear Farm Estuary Preserve are both areas of protected natural beauty on the outskirts of Yarmouth. The Spear Farm lies at the point where the Royal River meets the sea, while Littlejohn Island can be accessed by bridge from the mainland and across its relative, Cousins Island. Both preserves offer gentle trail-led walks through red oak forests and meadows of wildflowers. A multitude of birds can be spotted and, as well as the more usual seabirds, ospreys, bald eagles and great horned owls nest in these 2 particular spots year-round.
