Maine Lighthouse Road Trip: Bailey Island

This past May, I went on a solo road trip through the coast of Maine in search of the prettiest coastline views and beautiful lighthouses. I covered a lot of ground, and if you'd like to catch up on some of my other destinations, I'd love for you to follow these links:



Today's post is all about a very happy surprise. While planning my road trip, I decided rather than driving all the way to Ogunquit from Camden, I wanted to stop somewhere to spend the night to break up the drive. I looked at a map, picked a general region, did about 10 minutes of research, ended up in Bailey Island, and didn't really think too much about it, or plan a whole lot. And it ended up being such a beautiful stop with one of my favorite coastal viewpoints.

Okay, friends - when I last left you, I had made it all the way up to Lubec (almost to the Canadian border!), and now it's time to start working my way back down the coast. Next up on my adventure is Camden, as well as three beautiful lighthouses that are all relatively close to each other.

Camden was a town I had actually made a mental note of years ago when Josh and I drove through it during our first trip to Acadia. I remember driving down the main street area thinking it looked so picturesque and perfect for a weekend getaway, so I decided to spend two nights here for a little relaxation. 

Camden is another great home base if you're looking for a place to stay that has a distinct town feel with shops and restaurants, but also easy access to some other coastal sites and lighthouses. It's also only an hour from Boothbay Harbor, which I loved and you can read more about my time there here. You could definitely take a day trip to Boothbay, or vice versa (stay in Boothbay and day trip over to Camden).



There are three lighthouses I visited that are all an hour or less from Camden, but more on those in just a moment. Right now, let's talk about why Camden should be on your itinerary for your Maine adventure.

One Week on Cape Cod in Photos: July 2021

I’m taking a quick hiatus from my Maine recaps to share a few snapshots from our annual summer trip to the Cape. Most of you probably know by now that we spend a week on the Cape every July, and this is a trip we hold close to our hearts.

As much as I love exploring the world, coming here is an actual, true vacation. We don’t really plan anything, we slow down and don’t pack a ton in like we do when we travel to other places for the first time. We take naps, we sleep in (well, I do, Josh’s body doesn’t allow him to sleep late). It’s just easy, relaxing and carefree and full of beautiful scenery.

Since we do the same thing every year for the most part, no explanations are really needed. If you’re at all curious about our favorite things, I would suggest you hop on over to this post here.

At the end of this post, I also have links to some other posts you may find helpful, as well as a shopping guide for some things that are featured in this post. Take a peek at the very end if you see something you like.
