Located in Lincoln County of Maine is a beautiful town known as Damariscotta. The town is a well-known tourist destination which is connected to another major town, Newcastle, through a bridge over Damariscotta river. For an interesting outing head over to the Hog Island which is in the near vicinity of the town. Being a part of Todd Wildlife Sanctuary, it is a perfect venue for bird watching especially the species like Osprey and Puffin. Also, if you are visiting Damariscotta for more than six days, then do take part in the residential ornithology program here which provides insights into environmental norms. For a truly unique sightseeing experience drop by at Whaleback Shell Midden which, in reality, is a dump full of oyster shells. This place is in the National Register of Historic Places which is another major tourist attraction of the town. With hiking trails and a lake nearby, you will definitely have a wonderful time here. Foodies should head over to the Schooner Landing which is a waterfront seafood restaurant and serves classic scallops. Interested in booking an accommodation here?
