The locals who reside at Damariscotta boast that their ocean beaches and seaside or mountain hiking trails are the best in the state of Maine. As with many other communities in the Midcoast Region, the community has several historical sites and it is possible that the traveler could actually view an archeological dig in process. There are huge mounds of oyster shells that were left behind by the Native Americans who once lived in the area.
Other fun and interesting activities include watching the Alewives swim up the fish ladder, visiting the Pemaquid Light House, or browsing the various artisans' shops in town. There is also a variety of dining and lodging options – and do not miss enjoying a meal of fresh lobster served right on the dock.
The community of Damariscotta looks forward to having you visit them on your next vacation. Come and enjoy. Make yourself at home in this beautiful area of Midcoast Maine.
