Looking for a vacation spot this summer? If you want someplace different, not too far away, just waiting for you to discover it, then come to Eastport, Maine, at the northern end of the coast and just across the bay from New Brunswick, Canada. Eastport has a lot to offer visitors, with places and events and activities to appeal to history buffs, painters, whale-watchers, and families who want a great holiday in beautiful surroundings. Our festivals celebrate springtime, bird-watching, the Fourth of July, Passamaquoddy Tribal history and culture, pirate fun, salmon and a one-of-a-kind international New Year’s Eve. Water Street boasts a variety of shopping to suit all tastes and budgets, and many of our restaurants feature locally-caught seafood. The walkable downtown includes 29 buildings on the National Historic Register, the unique architecture making a nice contrast with the breathtaking vistas of sea and islands.
