Beach Town: Lubec, Maine

1 of 20

Lubec is way Down East (it’s near the New Brunswick border) and is blessed with an unfussy Victorian-Greek Revival–style downtown, 97 miles of shoreline, two lighthouses, and easy access to the former Roosevelt summer home on Campobello Island (now an international park).

Stay: Great Value Situated in an 1860 Federal-style residence, the Peacock House Bed & Breakfast has ocean views, an eclectic library, and manicured gardens. Doubles from $95.

Eat: The food at Annabell’s Pub is nothing fancy—fish chowder and the like—but the breezy Maine ambience is the real deal. Lunch for two $17.
