Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near Maine
While in Maine, you might enjoy a visit to:
At least 25 feet tall, one of the larger grizzled sea salts scattered along the Maine coast.
This rock, with Viking runes, marks the AD 1004 grave of Thorvald, brother of Viking explorer Leif Eriksson and son of Erik the Red. Or -- maybe it's just a rock with scratches on it.
Eunice "Goody" Cole wasn't burned, but she did have a stake driven through her dead heart. Some 300 years later New Hampshire felt guilty and put a plaque on a rock in her memory.
Ponder cryptic rock arrangements and chambers on a numbered, self-guided tour. Built by the Druids, or a bored New Hampshire farmer? It helps if you like walking in the woods and scrambling around rocks.
