Centrally located off the coast of southern Maine, the historic town of Wells exudes plenty of New England charm with a laid-back vibe and quaint attractions. Founded in 1643, the “Friendliest Town in Maine” offers travelers tons of things to do from kicking back at local clam shacks and building sandcastles on the beach to shopping for antiques. Wells is a pleasant place for a casual getaway, especially during the warmer months.
Outdoor lovers have an oasis to explore here, starting with the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, a serene sanctuary featuring walking trails and estuaries for migrating birds. For those that prefer sand and surf, head to one of the four pristine beaches including Moody Beach Crescent Beach, Wells Beach and Drakes Island Beach. Of course, no trip is complete without searching for amazing gems in the stores that dot Route 1 in the “Antique Capital” featuring a dazzling display of furniture, jewelry, rare books and a whole lot more. As for dining, the Maine Diner is a local institution that may look familiar from being featured on the Today Show and Food Network for its comforting dishes such as the Lobster Pie and Seafood Chowder. Over at the Hidden Cove Brewery, guests like to try cold beers in the Tap Room.
Summer is the best time to visit and hit the beaches as well as enjoy outdoor activities such as canoeing on the Webhannet River or playing golf at the scenic 18-hole course at the Old Marsh Country Club.
