Eliot, Maine is ideally situated on the mighty Piscataqua River, which forms the Maine-New Hampshire boundary, just minutes from Portsmouth's historic downtown. Eliot is surrounded by Maine's southern most town, Kittery, the quickly growing town of South Berwick, and the stunningly diverse town of York. Eliot retains the flavor of a classic New England village, offering a charming village green, excellent schools, and relatively low taxes.

Eliot, Maine Things to Do

Eliot Recreation: Launch your boat into the Piscataqua River, at "Dead Duck", Eliot's public boat launch. Dead Duck hosts Eliot's antique car show each year. Frost Tufts Park and Ballpark offers a playground and two tennis courts for public use. The last weekend in September is Eliot Festival Days, with a parade, road race, chili fest, fireworks at Dead Duck, food booths, and games. The Friends of the William Fogg Library offer an annual October Fest in early October. This popular Eliot event features exciting children’s activities, great food, a pie contest, and a silent auction.
