Pemaquid is a small, charming coastal town located in Lincoln County, which is one of the fastest growing counties in Maine. It is near the cities of Bristol, Wiscassett and Boothbay Harbor. Pemaquid was used as a filming location for the 1994 movie, "Forrest Gump." One of the main attractions in the town is the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, one of the most popular lighthouses in Maine. It sits atop a unique rock formation and reflects the powerful surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Numerous shipwrecks have occurred here over the years due to the dangerous rocks and surf at Pemaquid. The keeper's house is now the site of a Fisherman's Museum, which is actually operated by the town of Bristol. There is a small gift shop and restaurant located next to the light. The lighthouse is a photographer's dream, especially at sunrise. Pemaquid is also a short drive to New Harbor, where you can catch a boat to Monhegan Island (site of another lighthouse,) and also visit some of the great seafood restaurants in town.
