It is only a fifteen minute walk (or 2 minute drive) to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens which sits on 248 acres - one of Maine's top attractions, considered a world-class botanical garden, including a children's garden and large play area. A five minute walk will take you to the The Trevett Country Store for the best Lobster Rolls in town. Eat your Maine lobster while watching the sun set over the Back River.
If you are new in the area, we would recommend doing a few things first. Visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, go on a Whale Watch trip or just go sailing. Take your family to the local Aquarium with a touch pool for children (this is great to-do on a rainy day). Visit Ocean Point Marina and East Boothbay Village with its beautiful Art Galleries. Make a day out of Lighthouse tours in the area and visit Monhegan Island known for its artistic background. In Boothbay itself there is an 18 hole golf club open to the public which has just experienced major renovation. Visit Southport Island located just off of Boothbay Harbor and reached by car over one of the oldest swing bridges in the State of Maine. On the southern tip of the island you have island, lighthouse and ocean views, perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Go to the Farmers Market on Thursday morning from 9am to 12pm and get a taste of the local foods and crafts. Adventure into one of many antique stores in town or in nearby Wiscasset or Damariscotta; you are bound to find a treasure. Experience fine dining restaurants in the Boothbay Harbor Area; we guarantee you are going to love the lobster, crab, oysters, scallops or mussels because they're all local. Prepare a Maine Lobster Dinner at home. Visit Downtown Boothbay Harbor where “all the action is”. Restaurants, pubs and coffee shops await travelers from all over the world with traditional New England cuisine.
