Known as one of the best small cities in the U.S., Bath attracts lots of tourists every year and for good reason; there are lots of fun and relaxing activities to enjoy! You can walk along the Kennebec River, golf, visit art galleries, and even explore by hiking and mountain-biking in the local area. Of course, with the nickname of the 'City of Ships', there are maritime museums that pay tribute to its history. You can also head to Downtown Bath for some shopping and to try the local cuisine, and make sure you don’t miss Bath Heritage Days, which is one of the largest and most popular parades in the state.
On the banks of the Kennebec River is Maine Maritime Museum, where travelers can learn about the city’s heritage and visit one of the top museums in the world. If you like to go exploring in the outdoors, be sure to visit Thorne Head Nature Preserve. Here you can go hiking and enjoy nature at its finest. There are over 100 plant species and animals you can spot. To enjoy some swimming and sunshine, head to Popham Beach State Park, with long stretches of golden sand, or Reid State Park complete with sand dunes.
There are inns and hotels located in Downtown Bath that are near to all of the attractions, as well as shops and restaurants in walking distance.
