Yarmouth’s status as a large port and its proximity to New England accounted for its early prosperity, and today the town’s shipping heritage is still reflected in its fine harbor, marinas, and museums. The ferry service from Maine makes this an obvious destination for U.S. travelers, and the handsome Victorian architecture and a pleasantly old-fashioned main street make it worth a visit. Since the Evangeline Trail and Lighthouse Trail converge here, Yarmouth also allows easy access to the Acadian villages to the north or the Loyalist communities to the south.
