Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring: If you are looking for a place to take a great day trip near the coast but, don’t want to fight the crowds trying to get into Boothbay and Bar Harbor than Belfast may be just the place for you. First, there is plenty to see and do in this town. From art gallaries, to restaurants, shopping to the natural beauty of the area you’ll be glad you made the trip. The town has a quirky, artsy feel to it with its vintage theater just off Main Street, funky shops and interesting eats, Belfast is a great place to hang out for a while. One fun and interesting thing to do while you are there is to visit the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad located in Belfast. Guest can enjoy scenic train rides of Penobscot Bay on one of only a few remaining passenger trains in Maine. If you love theater, Belfast also is home to a talented live theater group called the Belfast Players. With an on-going play bill, theater lovers will forget they are in a a small mid-coast town in Maine. If you are into architecture, there are some beautiful old, Victorian homes in Belfast and a self guided walking trip especially on Northport Avenue is a great way to spend some time enjoying town. The banks of the harbor offer a perfect picnic spot and a place to kick back and read or just enjoy the views. Belfast has a real unhurried pace that makes it a great spot if you are looking for an “undiscovered” sea coast town that offers something for everyone.
