Lubec is the easternmost town in the U.S., famous for its iconic candy-striped lighthouse at Quoddy Head State Park, the easternmost point in the US. The park, along with local conservation preserves, provide visitors with opportunities to view the rugged coast that inspires the local arts and culture scene.
The downtown is compact and perfect for a walk, with small businesses, galleries, and cafes. Be sure to ask what is happening locally during your visit - Lubec boasts and vibrant and active community with many public events, such as the Summerkeys music programs and Wednesday concerts, as well as dances, art shows, and more.
Lubec is an international community, part of the Two Nation Vacation and a gateway to Campobello Island, Canada. Island residents depend on Lubec - during the winter, it is not directly accessed by ferry, so Canadians must travel through Lubec to Calais in order to get to the rest of their country! Campobello is home to the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, which encompasses FDR's former summer cottage, as well as a campground and numerous hiking trails.
Lubec is also the proud host of the Bay of Fundy International Marathon, a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
You'll want to take the time to do one or more of several tours available, such as a bog walk to explore the nature of the area or a history tour, rich with local flavor and culture.
