Back in 1765 when this city was being settled the naming rights came down to a coin flip, many of the founding fathers wanted to name the city Londonderry after their home in New Hampshire but a settler from Belfast, Ireland, wanted it named after his hometown. I guess it's clear who won...
Belfast was listed in my guidebook as one of the prettiest little towns in Maine and it seemed like a good place to aim for as we were driving down the coast. We stopped here for a stroll through the city, drove around to see a few architecturally interesting sights and then headed back across the bridge to have lunch at Young's Lobster Pound.
