Unique Places in Maine – Off the Beaten Path

Maine Off the Beaten Path

Maine is a state that is known for its natural beauty. Explore its splendor off-the-beaten path with stops at these memorable spots.

A True Sauna Experience

Rochester is just a 40-mile drive from Portland, and it is home to the Richmond Sauna Bed and Breakfast. There are six communal saunas on the premises. There is a private sauna that you can request if you are not comfortable with a communal one.

Vinalhaven Island

Vinalhaven Island is a great place to go for a quiet getaway. There is plenty to do on the island, including kayaking, fishing, and sight-seeing. The island is still used by lobster companies, so many of the beachfront rental homes have lobster traps right outside. There is a loop bicycle route through the center of the island if you like biking, along with about a dozen hiking trails.

Blueberry Festivals

Did you know that Maine produces 85% of the world’s wild blueberries? Because of this, there are countless small blueberry festivals held around the state each year. Pay a visit to one of them to taste some of the best blueberry and blueberry-related products you’ve ever tasted. The most popular one is probably the Machias Festival.

Maine Has a Desert

The desert of Maine is a small farm in the state that somehow got taken over completely by sand, giving it the looks of a desert. It is a popular tourist destination for those that enjoy the unique things in life.
