Like the rest of the world, Maine businesses are navigating the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to check websites for your destinations before visiting for the latest health and safety guidelines in place, and please remember to be patient and kind while visiting.
There’s something about Maine that makes you want to take a piece of it home with you. Several pieces, most likely. You’ll know it when you see it.
Shopping in Maine’s Historic Cities & Towns
Maine’s historic cities offer more than a trip down memory lane. At shops, boutiques and galleries — from Kittery to Bangor — you’ll find gifts and treasures to make a little shopping history of your own.
Browse the many independent, family-owned stores in the city’s riverside downtown, like The Rock & Art Shop. For the perfect gift to give someone who has everything, try the Antique Marketplace & Cafe.
Take a ride to Kittery, in far southern Maine, the state’s oldest incorporated town. A primary attraction is the stretch of outlet stores, including the Kittery Outlets and Kittery Premium Outlets, that hug Route 1.
