"Lubec, Maine" Lubec by Stephen-KarenConn

Lubec Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 30 photos

Lubec, Maine is the easternmost town in the continental United States and also is situated on the 45th Parallel, mid-way between the North Pole and Equator. Because of the cold waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, at the mouth of the famed Bay of Fundy, this remote little community is shrouded in fog about 60 days out of the year. On the day or our visit in late August we saw both fog and sun, changing every few minutes as the wind blew.

Lubec was originally a fishing village and fishing is still an important part of the economy. The town also draws many tourists, not only because of it's unique geographical setting, but also because of the outstanding scenery and outdoor recreational opportunities. It is a short hop from New Brunswick, Canada, via the Roosevelt Campobello International Bridge. Lubec is also home to the West Quoddy Light, one of the most photographed lighthouses in New England.

    Lubec looks lovely, but I don't think we'll make it that far north. Did you get a Lubec fridge magnet??

    What a dramatic place with a candy-striped light house and one that does, indeed, look like a "spark plug"! You seem to find the most unique places and sites/sights, Stephen.
