in our area is a true pleasure. Intimate boutiques offer
carefully chosen fine clothing and special mementos. Need
to re-stock the boat while you're in port? Maine supply,
grocery, and hardware stores are here to please. Discriminating
visitors to the area can browse our antique shops for one-of-a-kind
items or inexpensive collectibles.
While the greatest concentration of shops is in downtown
Belfast, more antique shops, as well as exceptional art
galleries, await you along Route 1. Head south to Lincolnville
Beach Area or north to the maritime village of Searsport.
