  • Such a nice place to take a nature walk, admire the view, or meander around the old buildings. Any time of year is a good time to go, though if you want access inside the tower you'll have to check seasonal hours.
  • A fun and historic place to visit by yourself or take the family. It has sweeping views of Casco Bay and two lighthouses. The kids can run and explore the fort. There are a couple of picnic tables and an outhouse. It is a great place for birdwatching as well. Fort McClary is an eBird Hotspot.

  • Feel like I got to see a part of history.
  • Great place to walk around explore and learn about history
