Your tour of Maine, the largest of the New England states as well as the farthest northeastern of the Unites States, will expose you to its rough, rocky coastline. Visit the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College in honor of Robert E. Peary and Donald B. MacMillan's 1909 exhibition to the North Pole. The museum displays items such as excerpts from Peary's journal of their exploration and the arctic gear used during their journey. After leaving Bowdoin College in Brunswick, head east to Bath, a shipbuilding center for more than 200 years. Visit the Maine Maritime Museum with 25 acres of scenic waterfront and seasonal river cruises on the Kennebec River.
