Whether you take a trip to Belfast after hearing about its delicious food, beautiful landscapes, quaint vacation rentals with scenic views of the Penobscot Bay, or rich history, you won’t be disappointed. Belfast, being a small city with no more than 7,000 permanent residents, boasts the best of small-town charm and big-city amenities.
Outdoor enthusiasts that find themselves in the small town of Belfast can spend a day relaxing in Belfast City Park, where they can play basketball and tennis, go swimming, sun tan on the beach, have a picnic, or go for a nature walk on any of the park’s wooded trails. They can also go for a jog along the water or go for a bike ride on the Belfast Harborwalk, or take their sports indoors and play a game of curling at the Belfast Curling Club. Guests who prefer a day of less strenuous activity can tour the High Street Studio & Gallery, take an art class at Waterfall Arts, or go bowling or play a round of pool at AllPlay Family Fun Center. To kill some time, visitors can go shopping at any of Belfast’s unique shops and boutiques including Alder and Vine, Brambles, Mainely Pottery, and Bennett’s Gem & Jewelry.
The best time to visit Belfast is within the time period of June-September for activities that require warm weather and sunshine.
A few of Belfast’s best events include the Belfast Harbor Fest, Belfast Celtic Festival, Handmade Art and Craft Festival, and the Belfast Pottery Festival. The Handmade Art & Craft Festival features dozens of local arts and crafts vendors all gathered in an art gallery to offer unique works of art and magnificent handmade items. The festival also includes tasty food and drinks. The Belfast Celtic Festival, on the other hand, celebrates the history of Belfast’s Irish heritage with poetry readings, scotch tastings, live entertainment, and the ever-popular Scottish Attire Contest.
