And we don’t mean temperature…
Belfast Maine was recently voted one of Budget Travel’s coolest small towns in 2008. We decided to take a look at how they chose this beautiful coastal town as one of their faves.
While I have not yet had the luxury of visiting Maine, it is on my list of places to see, especially during the fall foliage color change. Maine offers a charm that is unique to New England, with its famously beautiful landscape, legendary lobster feasts, and a culture all its own. As I’ve been daydreaming about a visit to this beautiful locale on Penobscot Bay in the near future, I thought I’d share some of my research with you.
What Should I Do? Experience some of Belfast’s old world charm. Wander around the village and explore the old buildings, shops, and galleries. Throughout the summer season, the town hosts numerous festivals. Check out the Museum In The Streets, a self-guided walking tour that will lead you through some of Belfast’s historic highlights.
What Should I Eat? Your number one culinary priority while visiting Belfast should be to experience some of the area’s world-famous lobster! In addition to lobster, be sure to experience the native clams, fish, shrimp, scallops, and more. Trip Advisor rates Young’s Lobster Pound as their number one restaurant in Belfast.
Where Should I Sleep? If you’re looking for an authentic New England experience, a charming Maine Bed and Breakfast is the way to go! The area has a variety of lodging options, most of which are inns and B&B’s. Belfast just is not the kind of town where a large chain hotel fits in.
Have you visited this charming village by the sea? Tell us about it! Where were your favorite attractions and restaurants? Where did you sleep? What did you do? Would you go back? We’d love to hear about your experience!
