When you come all the way to Washington County, Maine, there are a few things that you won’t want to miss.
As you drive up Route 1 towards the Machias Bay reason, you’ll see an unusual sight on the right side of the road. You’ll pass a huge blueberry. Yup. A blueberry. Thank blueberry happens to be the home of Wild Blueberry Land, a bakery and gift shop that sells all things…well…blueberry. Don’t forget to take your selfies!
The observatory (43 floors up) is located on Route one (between Stockton Springs and Bucksport) at the top of the bridge and is open May through October. During a clear day, visitors can see up to 40 miles, overlooking Maine’s mountains and meadows and ocean islands.
Kind of corny, the statue was originally made as a prop for a short-lived television show filmed in Eastport.
Bucks Harbor, Machiasport, Maine town pier.
Just the most perfect backdrop for the perfect selfie. Quintessential Maine. Pine trees, blue ocean and bobbing fishing boats.
