To all our wonderful Friends of the Fleet who voted for us (sometimes daily!), we thank you!


An initial field of 20 nominees selected by a panel of experts last fall was whittled down to 10 winners over a four-week online voting period. Rules allowed the public to vote online for one nominee per day.

Second and Third Place winners were awarded to Pemaquid Point Light and Maine Maritime Museum, respectively. The complete list of winners can be found on the USA Today 10Best website.

According to Meg Maiden, Marketing Director for the Maine Windjammer Association, “The Captains were thrilled—and incredibly honored—to have received top billing in this 10Best Readers’ Choice Award, especially with a field of so many wonderful Maine icons like L. L. Bean and Acadia National Park. We thank our guests and friends of the fleet for taking the time to vote for us.”

In addition to editors from USA Today and, the nominees for Best Maine Attraction were selected by Maine travel expert Hilary Nangle and author Eric D. Lehman.
