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.
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?
The women of the Islesboro Seing Circle(est.1858) make everything from baby sweaters to iPhone cases - not to mention a strong community fabric.
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.
Can you name this community?
