Just over the bridge in Lubec

Just across the Roosevelt International Bridge from Campobello Island, you will find  beautiful Lubec, Maine, the easternmost town in the contiguous United States. There are so many wonderful attractions in this quaint town. Here are just a few not to be missed!

West Quoddy Head Light and Quoddy Head State Park

The Quoddy Head State Park boasts beautiful views with coastal hiking trails that include a cranberry bog and rocky beach. The perfect place to watch the sun rise, the West Quoddy Head Light is located on the most eastern point of the continental US. Originally built in 1808 at the request of President Thomas Jefferson, today’s tower was built in 1858.

Downeast Charter Boat Tours

One of the best places to view the lighthouses in the Lubec area is at sea. Downeast Charter Boat Tours offers great excursions to view these lighthouses by sea, see seals and other wildlife, whale watch or simply witness the highest tides.

Lost Fishermen’s Memorial

This tranquil site remembers those lost in the fishing industry off the waters of Washington County, ME and Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada. Their names are etched onto the park’s wave sculpture.

Don’t forget to visit the shops in Lubec Harbor during your visit or grab a bite at one of the many local restaurants – Water Street Tavern, Frank’s Dockside, Cohill’s Pub, and Lubec Brewing Company just to name a few. Enjoy!
