Bryan Kolstad — Best Small Towns in Maine

Bryan Kolstad is a marine mechanic who has lived in Maine for his entire life. He loves living in this beautiful state because of the plethora of things to do there. The natural surroundings are absolutely stunning, and there are so many fun small towns to visit as well. Although it would be impossible to see everything amazing that Maine has to offer in one trip, there are certain must-visit locations you can’t miss. Here are some of the best small towns to visit in Maine.

-Bar Harbor: This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Maine. Located right next to Acadia National Park, you can enjoy amazing hiking and boating in the summer. The gorgeous scenery on Mount Desert Island is incomparable to many other places in the country — you will feel like you are in a small hamlet at the end of the world (but with great fish).

-Kennebunkport: This is another popular travel location for many Maine visitors. It is located in the Portland area, south of the city center. The town is known for its great food and lodging, as well as many great little shops and markets to explore. It is also very close to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge for serious nature lovers.

-Rockland: This town is very popular with visitors, and is considered the state’s “Lobster Capital”. The town features several great boat tour options, and you can also enjoy its many restaurants, bars, and entertainment options as well.

Bryan Kolstad considers himself lucky for having been able to enjoy the nature and cities in Maine while growing up.
