Things to Do and See in and Around Boothbay Harbor:-
If you’re looking for the authentic mid-coast Maine experience, this is it. Perhaps the most scenic body of ocean water on the eastern seaboard, mid-coast Maine features scores of islands, historic lighthouses, quiet little protected harbors and towns offering clothing and craft shops, art galleries and restaurants. A wild life paradise; ospreys and bald eagles nest high in the spruces along the rugged shores, harbor seals complete their annual pilgrimage to quiet coves and dolphins and whales loll about in the waves.
Outings: Take a day and visit Arcadia National Park, or one of the many lighthouses on the coast. Go to the outlet Mall in Freeport or visit the Ironworks at Bath for a great historical look into the making of the great steamships of a bygone era. Wiscasset is filled with museums from the old sea captains to the incredible music box museum.
