Islands A-Z

From art trails to the Zephyr Ledges, we’ve put together a guide (with help from our savvy islander friends) that’s as freewheeling and eclectic as the islands themselves.

Wild Wild East

On Maine’s islands, the presence of law enforcement is light to nonexistent. So how does a community make do with only the thinnest of thin blue lines?

Stitch ‘n’ Bliss

The women of the Islesboro Seing Circle(est.1858) make everything from baby sweaters to iPhone cases – not to mention a strong community fabric.

Bon Voyage (and Appetit)!

Portland proper isn’t the only foodie haven on Casco Bay. Jusy a ferry ride away, the islands are scenic spots for scrumptious coastal dining.


Where in Maine?

Can you name this community?
