Searsport is Maine's second largest port and has a rich seafaring history. Located in south central Maine, between Belfast and Bucksport, Searsport makes an ideal base for exploring the many antiques shops and flea markets along Highway 1, which has earned this city the title of "Maine's Antiques Capital." Many of the old sea captain's homes in Searsport are now bed & breakfasts, some of them with beautiful views of the bay and river, and furnished with period antiques. You will find family dining in Searsport, as well as upscale restaurants that serve such delicious entrees as Maine lobster, pepper-glazed pork tenderloin or horseradish-crusted salmon. Searsport is also home to the Penobscot Marine Museum, with a total of nine historical and five modern buildings that house exhibits, an outstanding collection of marine art and models of famous ships. You'll find plenty to do outdoors, as well, in Searsport. Nearby Moose Point State Park has hiking and biking trails. And, Searsport is an easy day trip to Acadia National Park and whale watching, deep-sea fishing, balloon flights over Penobscot Bay, and ferry trips to Islesboro, Vinylhaven or Isle au Haut.
