From World Atlas:

As the gateway to Maine’s scenic mid-coast region, Rockland is well-known for its vibrant arts community, bustling harbor, and fresh seafood. It is home to the annual 5-day Maine Lobster Festival, which takes place during the first weekend of August. Although the festival was once a local gathering to attract tourists to mid-coast Maine towns, it has grown into an internationally recognized celebration of local seafood, attracting visitors worldwide. To wash down all that lobster, Rockland’s local breweries include Rock Harbor Brewing Co., where visitors can order a flight of beers on a brewery tour, and Oyster River Winegrowers in nearby Warren, a small organic farm winery.

Those interested in local culture rejoice at the friendly atmosphere and attractions like the Farnsworth Art Museum, which celebrates Maine’s role in American Art with 15,000 works in its collection. Further out on the coastline, the Maine Lighthouse Museum contains the world’s most extensive collection of lighthouse, lifesaving, and U.S. Coast Guard artifacts in the U.S. Similarly, the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse is also open for tours on the iconic Rockland Breakwater—a mile-long granite path completed in the 19th century.
