Yarmouth prides itself as a beautiful suburban coastal community located 12 miles north of Portland, Maine. It offers a New England style main street (known as the “Village”) with a combination of old homes and small businesses, a beautiful parkway along the picturesque Royal River, a sheltered port in Yarmouth Harbor, and a diversified commercial base along U.S. Route 1.
Yarmouth is a welcoming town, inviting residents and guests to enjoy and explore its diverse array of open spaces. Yarmouth’s goal is to be a walkable community, where streets, sidewalks and trails provide connectivity by foot or bicycle to parks, open spaces, and commercial areas that support healthy living. Many feature trails that wander through woodlands, wetlands, grasslands, and scenic overlooks along the water’s edge.
