Milbridge is a clean, pretty little town located at the head of Narraguagus Bay along Route 1, approximately 30 miles east of the city of Ellsworth. It has typical New England charm and amenities including shops and restaurants, lobster pounds, a marina and two campgrounds. Milbridge also features 75 miles of coastline with spectacular views of the Narraguagus River and the Gulf of Maine. There is much to do in the area, but it's especially popular for fishing, boating and camping. Birdwatchers also love Milbridge, where you can expect to see the American Bald Eagle, falcons, puffins and many more species of seabirds and shorebirds. Points of interest include McClellan Park, which offers picnic areas, camping, hiking trails along ten acres of Narraguagus Bay, and spectacular scenery of the offshore islands and rugged coastline. The Petit Manan National Wildlife Sanctuary is less than a half-hour from Milbridge, and is a nesting area for over 300 species of birds. Petit Manan Island is a natural seabird colony and contains one of the tallest lighthouses on the East Coast. In town, Riverside Park is a nice spot for a picnic or just to relax and enjoy the views. There are also several fishing spots within Riverside Park, which is easily accessible from Bridge Street.

Milbridge 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.
