Fall in Castine – Brilliant Colors, Harvest Dinners & Historic Tours


Fall in a Maine College Town

Castine is a spectacular place to visit in the fall. The trees turn brilliant colors; bright red, orange and gold, and the deep blue harbor sparkles with their reflection. College students return to the prestigious Maine Maritime Academy, located in the center of town.

Autumnal Dinners, Galleries, Foliage Sails

Farm-to-table harvest dinners are part of the autumnal experience and lobster is at its best in the fall! As the busy summer social season starts to wind down you’ll still find plenty to do. Sailing, golfing, shopping, kayaking and exploring galleries and museums are all great activities to enjoy in the foliage season.

Touring the area by foot or by car will offer amazing views of the foliage, historic homes, the deep water harbor and the many historic sites of this 400-year-old village.

Enjoy a Colorful Fall in Castine.
