Rockland, Maine
Rockland is at the heart of Midcoast Maine, an area world famous for its mountainous and rocky shore, with hundreds of harbors and inlets, and for some of the best cruising waters anywhere. A nearly mile-long granite breakwater protects Rockland Harbor and its picturesque lighthouse.

Rockland's history includes shipbuilding, lime processing, granite quarrying, and commercial fishing and lobstering. Historic Main Street forms the core of retail shopping, and has gone through a renaissance over the last several years. The community’s proud past survives in many ways, including a newly restored and enlarged Carnegie library, and an incredible mix of traditional residential styles of architecture that rivals the historic homes of many larger cities. Lodging is plentiful, dining opportunities abound and day trips in any direction provide ample rewards, including museums for rainy days.

Youth programs, visitor services, research, wildlife management, and more are coordinated on the park’s 34 islands and peninsulas.

Boston Harbor
Boston, the capital and largest city in Massachusetts, and one of the oldest cities in the United States, is the economic and cultural center of New England. The city proper has a population over 600 thousands, and anchors the larger metropolitan area of Greater Boston with a population over 4 million people.

Puritan colonists from England founded the city in 1630. During the American Revolution Boston was the scene of several historic events, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill,and the battles of Lexington and Concord.

After independence, Boston became a major port and manufacturing center.

Since its discovery by John Smith in 1614,[2] Boston Harbor has been an important port in American history. It was the site continuous back filling of the harbor until the 19th century.

By 1660 almost all imports came to the greater Boston area and the New England coast through the waters of Boston Harbor. A rapid influx of people transformed Boston into a booming city.
