Reid Beach, Georgetown
Georgetown & Arrowsic

The historic islands of Georgetown and Arrowsic sit side by side on the coast of MidCoast Maine, linked to the mainland by roads and bridges. Centuries ago, English settlers arrived to fish and farm. But they didn’t stay long. Frequent wars with Native people and the French emptied the settlements, sometimes for years. But eventually, the wars ended and the islands became the inviting, tranquil places they are today.

Things to Do in Georgetown and Arrowsic

When many visitors think of Georgetown, they think of Reid State Park. With good reason. Reid is one of Maine’s most popular seaside getaways. It sports several large beaches and a group of sand dunes rare in the state. Climb atop Griffith Head, a stony headland over the water, and you’ll get a great view of surrounding islands and lighthouses.

Also in Georgetown, you can visit the Josephine Newman Audubon Sanctuary. This 119-acre preserve includes trails that will take you by salt marsh, meadow, forest and coastline.

On Arrowsic, you can visit some of the unusual lighthouses set to guide ships up and down the Kennebec River. They include Squirrel Point, Doubling Point and the Kennebec River Range lights.
