Things to Do and See in Rockland
The Gateway to Penobscot Bay
Rockland, Maine — the “Gateway to Penobscot Bay” — is known for its craggy shoreline, scenic inlets and working harbor. Its mile-long granite pier, the Rockland Breakwater, continues to protect Rockland Harbor, one of the best recreational boating ports on the east coast and host to Maine’s Windjammer fleet.
The revamped downtown area, with its eclectic shops, boutiques and restaurants, is within an easy walk of the harbor. Rockland is also home to fine arts, historic landmarks, events and museums. During your stay be sure to explore all of Rockland’s many points of interest and area activities, including short day trips to Owls Head Lighthouse, or up to Camden Hills State Park for some hiking.
