Brooksville is a small community located on Smith Cove near Little Dear Isle on Penobscot Bay in Downeast Maine. This is a very pretty area of the state, where one can photograph the fields of wildflowers in the spring, explore tidepools in the summer, pick blueberries in the fall and cozy up to a warm fireplace in the wintertime - each season as picturesque as the next. Recreational activities in Brooksville include kayaking and canoeing, fresh water and salt water fishing, boating, sailing, golf and hiking. Shopping in the boutiques of the nearby towns of Stonington and Castine is great, and numerous antique stores are located in the Brooksville area. Nearby, the town of Blue Hill is known for its art galleries and arts and crafts shops. There are several lighthouses located in this region along rugged coastal outcroppings, and scenic ferry cruises take you on a scenic sightseeing tour of the many islands throughout the Bay. The Marine Environmental Research Institute is also located in the village of Blue Hill, and offers eco-tours, as well as learning adventures and programs for children and adults. Also, while visiting Brooksville, be sure and spend some time in neighboring Castine, which is a beautiful, historic little town that is listed on the National Register of Historic.
