Jonesport is a small fishing village of approximately 1500, located along Maine's rugged "Down East" coast. Visitors to the town enjoy the sights and sounds of a real working fishing village, and delight in the fresh clams, lobsters and other seafood, straight from the boats! The Jonesport area abounds with wildlife, such as deer, black bear, moose, horned owls and bald eagles. It's also a popular birding spot, with charter boat trips to Machias Seal Island available daily. In the summertime, Jonesport holds a special 4th of July celebration and the World's Fastest Lobster Boat Races. You'll find lots of hiking trails in the nearby Great Wass Island Preserve, along with biking, kayaking and other sports. The weather here is great with warm days and cool nights - no air conditioning is needed even in the hottest part of the year. Fall is an exceptional time to visit when the trees turn crimson and gold. You can tour the countryside and visit the area's many antiques and crafts shops, looking for those one-of-a-kind gifts and artwork. Winters here are mild with cool nights, perfect for cross-country skiing or curling up beside a fire with a good book, making anytime of the year a good time to visit Jonesport.

Jonesport Weather & Climate

The easternmost area of the United States is Washington County, Maine, which is also one of the most remote areas of Maine. There are four seasons, although summers are very mild and air conditioning is not necessary in this part of the state. The greatest rise and fall of tides on the shores of the continental U.S. occur along the Washington County coastline, and it is the first place in the country to see the sunrise each day. The Maine coastal climate receives lots of precipitation - in every form. Ice storms are regular in winter and early spring, and rain is frequent in every month of the year. The average annual rainfall is 48 inches and the average annual snowfall is 61 inches. Snow does not stay on the ground as long along the coast as it does further inland and in northern Maine. There are plenty of clear, sunny days in summer and fall, followed by crisp, cold nights. Fog is common during June, July and August.
