Visit Mid-Coast Maine
Thank you for your interest in visiting the Boothbay and Mid-Coast Regions of Maine. We like to think our area is a great place to visit and offers the most activities and attractions for our guests.
Midcoast and particularly the Boothbay Region are centrally located to explore up and down the coast of Maine. LL Bean and the Outlets in Freeport are less than an hour away; Portland is about an hour. Camden and Rockland are 40 minutes to our North and Bar Harbor is a day trip from here. After a day of shopping, exploring, boating or fishing, return to your coastal Maine cottage to relax and enjoy the views.
Throughout the summer we host many special events - Late June is Boothbay's Windjammer Days Celebration with representatives of that magnificent fleet that come sailing into the Harbor, street parades and fireworks as well as all the lobster you could want. We have weekly Farmer's Markets where you may purchase locally grown foodsand specialty products; Craft Fairs with local cottage industry products all locally made including the works of local artists and photographers, woodworkers, etc.
Early August sees the local Boothbay Shipbuilders Festival where we celebrate our heritage of building some of the finest boats in the world. Tour one or more of the ship building companies and taste our local fare. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens are located here too. Come ride one of the three trains in our area an authentic Narrow Gauge Railroad in Alna, the Narrow Gauge in Boothbay, or take the Eastern Maine Railroad trip from Bath/Brunswick to Rockland and visit the Owls Head Transportation Museum, just north of Thomaston.
Come in the Fall and enjoy one or all of our Fairs. Pick Strawberries in June, Blueberries in August or Apples in September to enjoy with your fresh Maine Lobster.
