Take a look at one of the most beautiful towns in Maine. Its beauty is drawn from the fact that this town has not been commercialized despite being located just off Route One. The shops in Belfast, Maine contain the wares of local artisans as well as items manufactured in America. You can also spend your time visiting one of the many art galleries. There are several places and activities to keep you busy while you visit Belfast. They have a city park that is perfect for a picnic lunch, tennis, swimming, beach combing as well as having a playground area for the kids. They are known for their beautiful walking bridge and newly built, state of the art dog park. On a rainy day, you can take in a movie at the Colonial Theatre and on better days go boating or find sea glass in the harbor at low tide.
Here are a few photographs I took during my visit to Belfast, Maine...
We ended our time in Belfast by attending a "Street Party." There was music, dancing, rock wall climbing, bounce houses for the kids, bungee jumping and free popcorn in front of the theatre.
It very much had a neighborhood feel to it as I heard people chatting about their families, dancing to the live music and enjoying each others company.
I highly recommend you visit this beautiful town that prides itself in staying true to its roots by honoring the craftsmanship, artisans and people who live there.
