Elsewhere along the coast in Hancock and Washington Counties youOCOll find picturesque fishing villages. To the west sits Castine, home to the Maine Maritime Academy and several historic sites. Just south is Deer Isle and Stonington, both home to busy commercial harbors bustling with lobster and fishing boats. Here, more and more galleries are tucked into the weathered buildings every year. Ellsworth is a major commercial center. Still, just a few miles from the inviting Main Street area of downtown, the waters of Green, Graham and Branch Lakes are popular recreational destinations. One of the undiscovered gems of this region is Schoodic Point, near Winter Harbor. Schoodic is part of Acadia National Park, and offers spectacular scenery and rough surf crashing into rocks on stormy days. Here is the most detailed guide to this unforgettablea region of Maine.
