Located between the mouth of the Damariscotta River and Linekin Bay on the Atlantic Coast of Maine, East Boothbay is a stunning place to take a vacation. East Boothbay is a small town by any standards, but it is even smaller in the winter because most of the local population does not live there year round. It is very much a summer destination. Maine locals cherish the entirety of the Boothbay region and acknowledge as one of the best places to have a summer getaway.
The nearby Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is situated on 250 acres of pristine land where rose and meditation gardens gently welcomes visitors. The trails that wander through flower patches, past ponds, and along other areas covered in local flora are truly stunning. While neither are directly located in East Boothbay, the Maine Maritime Museum and Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park are both great places to get a feel for the area's seafaring history. The views from the lighthouse are worth a trip alone. Also with as much coastline as East Boothbay has, spending a day or two at the beach is a must.
Again, East Boothbay is rather small, so anywhere in town will do, but with the proper planning folks can find some stunning accommodations that have amazing ocean views.
100% we would say summer. Being able to wander the crooked shores of the Atlantic and the banks of various rivers, should hold endless appeeal. While the temperatures are warmer than the rest of the year, they are by no means overwhelming. Just be sure to plan ahead as summer is by far the most popular time to visit.
With a touch of kitsch and a touch of class, the Carriage House Restaurant is easily one of the beest places to grab a bite to eat in East Boothbay. The Thistle Inn and Restaurant also has some tasty options with a cool, old-timey tavern feel. Also, no trip to Maine can be complete without diving into some lobster, so wherever tourists decide to eat, be sure to see what kind of lobster options are on the menu.
