Taunton Bay is a special place.
The Taunton Bay region in coastal Hancock County includes Hog and Egypt Bays, Carrying Place Inlet to the U.S. Route 1 Bridge, and Taunton River to the protruding rock ledge at Tidal Falls, where it joins Frenchman Bay. The region is rich in history, wildlife, scenic beauty, and is the source of income for many residents of the area.
