The architecture and Natural beauty of this town is breathtaking. If you want a respite and to have Natural surrounds that astonish and architecture that stuns, this is your town. It is not a place for thrill seekers but for aesthetes.
Loved Castine's Main Street with its wide street and fine elms, which have survived Dutch Elm Disease. Recommend walking the entire length of it all the way to the harbor.

It's a very pretty street in a very pretty town. There's not much to see or do, however. There are a few shops to visit and restaurants to eat at. All in all, it's a pleasant place to take a stroll for and hour or so.
