There are many stops along the way and the mansions you'll encounter are breath taking. Benches along the route allow you to sit and take... More

I have gone here around 4 times in the last month for around 15 minutes to 20 minutes at a really early hour. I get my cup of coffee and sit on the bench, and look at Mr. & Mrs. Bush's House. It is a mansion jutted out in the Atlantic ocean with around 5 other houses on the property.... More

This area is very small and also very rocky. Kind of hard to get to and not much for parking. But if the weather is good, you should try it.

This is my favorite place to just sit and relax! My kids love to climb on the rocks here and I love to grab a shrimp box from the clam shack and soak up the sun, the views and the peace of the Maine coastline.
