Located on Moose Island between Cobscook Bay and Passamaquoddy Bay, aptly named Eastport is the easternmost city in the United States. The surrounding coastline and natural attractions are just as picturesque as some of the more well-trodden downeast destinations, and the city itself is known for its friendly locals and a refreshingly eccentric vibe influenced by the vibrant creative community. Explore one of the many museums and galleries or stop by The Commons Eastport – a waterfront artist cooperative that features and sells the work of more than 90 local artists and artisans. Whale-watching adventures are also popular; in addition to these majestic creatures, you’re likely to spot seals, porpoises, bald eagles, osprey and puffins
