Southern Maine Tours

These Maine tours by land and sea are your chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Maine's southern coast.

Take some time to learn something new while you're on vacation, 'cause folks, we've got oodles of wonderful Maine tours for you to explore!

You can do some Maine sightseeing on board a lobster boat, while riding Atlantic ocean waves on a kayak tour, or enjoying a horse drawn carriage ride down centuries-old New England streets.

How about strolling hand-in-hand with your sweetheart on a self-guided walking tour, or relaxing in a comfortable van while learning all about the lighthouses of Maine or the history of your favorite town?

While this page is focused on York and the immediate area, you'll find even more tours -- specific to each town -- on each of our "Day Trips" pages (see navigation bar at left).

Southern Maine Tours By Land

The Old York Historical Society

Offering thirty-seven period room settings and several galleries housed throughout nine historic museum buildings, the Museums of Old York showcases a wealth of early New England art, architecture, and decorative arts. The exhibits focus on the stories of southern Maine's men, women, and children and the world they created and lived in from the earliest settlement in the 1600s to the present day.

Living history demonstrations, gallery talks, guided tours, and self-guided walks enhance a visit to Old York. Take your picture in the pillory where criminals were once kept for public humiliation in front of the Old Gaol. Special tours can be arranged where you can meet the jailer's family, the Tavern Keeper, or the School Master. June to mid-October.
