While tourists flock to bigger, crowded cities this time of the year, Maine residents and visitors looking for rocky coastlines, towering pines, and quaint communities can find plenty of destinations on these beautiful Maine drives.

State Route 11: Fish River Scenic Byway

Catch a glimpse of an eagle or a moose on this spectacular, hilly Maine byway. The 38-mile drive between Portage and Fort Kent offers outstanding views of meadows, Mount Katahdin, and Eagle Lake. Load up the car with picnic materials and stop for a family lunch at one of the many wilderness camps surrounding the area’s lakes.

Route 113: Pequawket Trail Scenic Byway

This magnificent section of Route 113 from Baldwin to Gilhead runs along the Saco River, taking its travelers through thousands of years of history in just 60 miles. The presence of the Sokokis Indians lives on through the work done by the artisans, craftsmen, and sustainable farmers there today. Stop for a hike through picturesque White Mountain National Forest.

Schoodic National Scenic Byway

The quintessential Maine can be found on the Schoodic. Pass through the only mainland section of Acadia National Park and head towards gorgeous Schoodic Point. Look to the cold, rugged North Atlantic waters to witness the Maine lobster boats at dock or the wooden piers jutting into the sea. Cadillac Mountain and rolling hills full of wild blueberries provide the perfect backdrop.
