Welcome to Maine’s Schoodic Area

Welcome to Maine’s Schoodic Peninsula!

The Schoodic Area is exactly what people declare it to be: an unspoiled, uncrowded coastal Maine jewel. First-time visitors are typically amazed by all the peninsula has to offer. In this one, unique location, bold mountains meet the sea . . . art meets nature . . . lobster meets the belly . . . and no one meets a stranger.

The opportunities for outdoor adventures are endless and the vibrant community of artisans, historic sites, museums, and places to experience the coast of Maine will leave you breathless.
