The Bold Coast

Running from working waterfronts of Winter Harbor and Milbridge to the small town of Calais, The Bold Coast section of DownEast Acadia can be explored by driving along the Bold Coast Scenic Byway. The Bold Coast The Bold Coast is rich in unspoiled vistas and strong cultural traditions. Wild blueberry barrens and mossy forests yield to tidal marshes and bays. Sparkling lakes, rivers, and streams flow into active fishing harbors. Historic towns and villages speak of the wealth of 19th Century shipbuilding, lumber processing, and sardine canning industries.

Visitors here can experience first-hand a hard-working, hands-on culture. Communities are not flashy, and local people are proud, resourceful, and humble.
