A must see for anybody that enjoys the beautiful scenery of coastal Maine. Don't miss the opportunity to have some seafood at Billy's or the Oarweed if they're open.

Perkins Cove is a very charming and inviting place to visit. You are immediately drawn in to the shops and can get a since how life here has not changed very much. The sounds of the fishing boats heading out the smell of the salt in the air is mesmerizing.

If you are here, you must walk either the Marginal Way or down the road to Perkins Cove. It is a quaint little area with shops and restaurants. There is a footbridge to cross to go over to the Art Museum if you want. The area is crowded but well worth the two to three hours you will spend going... More
