|Belfast, Maine - Introduction|
This broad swath of rocky shoreline and rolling countryside is dubbed the Heart of Coastal Maine for a good reason.
Watch lobstermen hauling their traps or walk up the hill one block to the downtown and stop
into the mom-and-pop businesses on every corner where you can find home-baked goods and some local art.
Well-known for its exceptional crafts and antiques, Belfast is also home to the Bearfest, where dozens of
fiberglass bears decked out in wild designs line the downtown streets.
Belfast Harbor begins at the mouth of the Passagassawakeag River and stretches SE into West Penobscot Bay.
The City Landing lies at the bottom of the hill at the foot of Main Street.
The center of the city is a short walk and very scenic with its historic buildings and views of the Bay.
The shores of Belfast Harbor have many large areas open to the public for walks, picnics, etc.
For the transients who come here, Belfast is known for its convenience, hospitality, community spirit,
beautiful historic houses and buildings, and scenery.
