Washington County is one of the last places in the busy, over-crowded Eastern seaboard where you can get away by yourself on a forest trail or walk for miles on the salt-sprayed shoreline and see no one. You can still yield to that bit of pioneer blood left in your veins and live completely out of sight of the smoke from your neighbor's cabin, if you want to.  Not many are withdrawing that far but there are a considerable number of others who look to Washington County as their last frontier of peace, beauty,  quietness, and clear, clean air.

Downeast Maine

The term "downeast" refers to sailing eastward, or down wind, and when you get to sunrise county you're as far down east as you can get. Quoddy Head is the easternmost point in the US. Campobello Island, summer home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, is actually in New Brunswick, but is only a few feet from Maine across an international bridge. All the small towns along the Maine coast in sunrise county depend on fishing and lobstering for their livelihood. Cherry field is famous for Atlantic Salmon.
