What is it like living and working in Eastern Maine?
If you are looking for a true Maine lifestyle, eastern, Maine offers an authentic experience like no other. This region, considered “Downeast,” is the home of many iconic Maine images—lobster, blueberries, lighthouses, and, of course, the beautiful sweeping coastal views:
- With its rugged coastline and spectacular views, Acadia National Park is certainly the gem of coastal Maine. This 49,000-acre reserve on Mount Desert Island is the only national park in the northeast and offers an expansive natural playground for both families and adventure-seekers.
- If you love the water, you are sure to enjoy life here. Between the miles of coastline and numerous inland lakes and streams, there are plenty of opportunities to canoe, kayak, or even take a schooner or whale-watching cruise.
- Just down the road from Acadia is the town of Bar Harbor. Although this town only has approximately 5,000 residents, thousands more flock to this coastal town during the vacation season to soak in the beauty.
