realty round up: belfast, maine

Emily Oster

It is going to be 97 degrees in St. Louis today so I am dreaming of getting away to someplace north and much cooler.  A place like Belfast, Maine sounds just about perfect on a day like to day. Roughly a two hour drive from Portland, Belfast is located at the mouth of the Passagassawakeag River estuary on Penobscot Bay. According to the 2010 census, the city's population was 6,668 and is known for being a quiet town even during the busy summer tourism months. Local finds include:
- Chase's Daily - known for its delicious breakfast items, vegetarian options and its baked goods - it also sells fresh produce from their local farm.
-Three Tides - looks like a good place to sample the beers of local microbreweries.
- Art Galleries - the town has 18 galleries in its small downtown. 
- Young's Lobster Pound - the best fresh lobster in town according to David Lyon, a native of Belfast and a Boston Globe correspondent.
