Things to do in South Bristol, USA

As is well known, Maine has more coastline than any other US state, despite being relatively small in terms of area. This is because the waterfront here is so craggy and varied, and the coast around South Bristol vacation accommodation is no different. Much of the water in the area is very sheltered, making it perfect for a range of family-oriented activities such as sailing – while canoeing and kayaking are increasingly popular forms of recreation in Maine. Guided expeditions are organised, with interesting information offered on Maine’s nature and history. As you might expect for a destination that is known for its water-based activities, fishing is important, both as an industry and a form of tourism. There are plenty of local businesses offering bait, advice on the best spots and boat hire. If you head for a South Bristol vacation rental in mid-summer, then there are a number of beaches to discover. One of the best is a short drive away at Pemaquid, which boasts a good range of facilities and is the ideal spot to experience Maine’s bracing water temperatures. On land you could take the chance to explore the area, with sleepy villages and forest waiting to be enjoyed – Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is an important landmark and dates back to the early 19th Century to guide ships past a trick portion of the Maine coast.
