Perry is a small town of less than 1,000 residents, located in southeastern Maine right off Highway 1 near the Atlantic seacoast. This is Washington County, the place to come to "get away from it all," which is also the easternmost point in the continental United States. Residents of Washington County are the first to see the sunrise every morning. Perry is approximately 110 miles east of Bangor International Airport, and two hours north of Bar Harbor, Maine. Some of the things to do here include exploring seaside beaches and coves, picking wild blueberries, clamming, fishing, boating, kayaking, swimming and hiking. Perry is in the heart of a very remote area of the state, where the sunrises and sunsets are incredible, skies are filled with stars, and the nightlife is of the natural kind, such as deer and occasionally black bear or moose. Other attractions in the area include Cobscook Bay, known for its' bald eagle population and unique rock formations. Wintertime is incredible in Washington County where ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are all available. For shopping and other services, the town of Calais, which is the largest town in Washington County, is approximately a half-hour from Perry.

Perry Weather & Climate

The eastern seacoast of Maine near the Canadian border, which includes the towns of Lubec, Alexander and Jonesport has an extreme oceanic climate with cool temperatures, wind and fog. Fog is especially likely to form when warm, moist air meets the cold air here. The fog and wind help spread the boggy growth over the thin soil and rocky outcroppings of the area. Washington County is the first spot in the United States to see the sunrise every morning, and does not have the severe snowfalls or frigid cold of the northern regions. The coast does receive a lot of precipitation, however, in the form of rain, ice and snow. Summers along Maine's eastern seaboard are very mild, with chilly nights and daytime highs rarely going above 80 degrees F.
