Despite its proximity to Portland, Yarmouth remains a picturesque small town graced by centuries-old homes and commercial buildings. Exceptional restaurants and appealing shops, both in the historic downtown and out on Route 1, draw visitors from Portland and beyond. Yarmouth also has fine hiking trails, and frontage on both fresh and saltwater makes it a good boating destination. Unlike Freeport, its neighbor to the north, it’s usually pretty quiet here, except during the annual Clam Festival.
