The area of Maine known as Pleasant Bay is noted for its great scenic beauty and its geological diversity. Tourists who travel here can take advantage of the different daily guided tours to the various regions of the Pleasant Bay Area. This is also a prime location for a kayaker or canoer to explore the area's history and natural surroundings.

At Pleasant Bay, you can also view or purchase llamas at a local llama keep. Llamas are interesting, social animals that appear to thrive in the natural surroundings. Other activities include shopping for antiques, fly-fishing in the fresh-water lakes or taking a charter-fishing trip.

For a stroll back in time, you can take a walking tour of a historic village that has over 52 buildings of days gone by. There is also a museum filled with memorabilia including photographs, tools, and household items dating from the mid 1800's.
