Things to do in Damariscotta

Located an hour north of Portland, Damariscotta is the quintessential New England coastal village. The rivers, lakes, pristine countryside, and rocky ocean coast shape the landscape. These natural gems provide numerous opportunities for outdoor activities including fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing, swimming and boating, and have been a draw and inspiration for artists and musicians for years.

There are more than 80 miles of hiking trails managed by land trusts nearby, much of it along waterways; two golf courses and hundreds of locally-owned and managed businesses that help make Damariscotta a vibrant year-round community.
