A thriving arts scene, dozens of restaurants and scores of shops and boutiques draw people to this historic seaside community on the western shore of Penobscot Bay. The home of the North Atlantic Blues Festival, the Maine Lobster Festival, and the Maine Boat & Home Show, Rockland’s Main Street overlooks a busy waterfront where lobstermen and women tend their traps, and pleasure craft find safe anchorage and moorings.

A national Main Street designated downtown!
