Things to Do in Newport Maine

Nestled just north along Maine’s picturesque coastline, Newport offers a charming atmosphere with loads of things to do to fill your time despite its small size. The first place most people want to see in Newport is the pristine shores of Sebasticook Lake—a more than 4,000-acre lake that happens to be one of the largest in the state. This area is perfect for fishing, boating, and serene lakeside picnics.

After spending some time at Sebasticook, savor the freshest seafood at local eateries like the Angler’s Restaurant or grab lunch at the Newport Diner. After lunch, check out the Newport Entertainment Center for bowling, pool, and arcade games. If you happen to be in Newport in the fall, pay a visit to Rowe Orchards where you can pick your own apples and shop at the on-site store for fresh jellies, syrup, and more.

If you’re looking for good cannabis in Newport, Gram’s Five & Dime recreational dispensary is conveniently located on Moosehead Trail. Our menu is full of the best flower in the state, as well as beverages, vapes, edibles, and more. Swing by to see why we’re considered one of the best dispensaries in Maine.

Things to Do in Bangor Maine

Bangor is a vibrant city with a little something for every traveler, regardless of that traveler’s interests. Before your visit, if you love catching live concerts, look at the schedule of events at the Bangor Waterfront. The Bangor Waterfront is a hub of entertainment, often hosting concerts and festivals throughout the year.

If you’re in the mood for a nature getaway, the Bangor City Forest is a haven for nature lovers with over nine miles of hiking trails and serene spots for picnics. Bangor also happens to be the home of Stephen King. If you’re a fan, you can drive by the Stephen King House—the stately, somewhat creepy Victorian-style residence of the renowned author in downtown Bangor. While in the area, spend some time exploring the city’s downtown eateries like Angelo’s Pizzeria and Paddy Murphy’s.

Things to Do in Detroit Maine

Detroit is a small town with a population of only around 900 people. Nevertheless, the town’s position along the tributaries of the Sebasticook River, its small stature, and its history make it an inviting place to visit. Embrace the charm of small-town Maine by looking for roadside farm stands and occasional farmer’s markets as you take a leisurely drive through the countryside.

Detroit is also home to Gram’s Five & Dime medical cannabis dispensary, so if you’re a patient, we’d love to serve you at the Detroit location. We offer a premium collection of cannabis flower, tinctures, edibles, cartridges, and more to meet the needs of every patient.
