Situated less than an hour's drive to other unique coastal treasure towns like Bar Harbor, Camden and Blue Hill, Bucksport, Maine is a great place to stay during your trip to Maine. IN addition, the town is just thirty minutes away from shopping hubs and a mere two hours from excellent skiing at Squaw, Sunday River and Sugarloaf Mountains.
Though central, Bucksport is less bustling than some, offering spectacular views of the famous Waldo/Hancock Bridge and historic Fort Knox, Maine's most visited historic site, and excellent outdoor activities.
The town itself is nearly next to the oldest salmon hatchery in the nation and Bucksport recently built a cultural arts center with a 500-seat auditorium.
Bucksport is home to many early American residential properties, one of the finest golf courses in the State of Maine, a mile long waterfront walkway which is used by thousand of walkers each year, and a busy commercial harbor.
This is a unique community to visit and enjoy. Make sure to mark it on your list of places to travel.
