What memories are made of…
Everyone finds the Boothbay Harbor Region the perfect Maine destination. Our Boothbay Harbor peninsula is rich in history, and brimming with shopping, dining and all kinds of fun things to see and do. There are quaint village streets lined with shops and boutiques, and picture perfect harbors dotted with lobster boats, pleasure craft, and windjammers. You will be captivated by our quiet coves, rocky shores, island lighthouses and by the warmth and friendliness of the people who call this beautiful part of Maine home.
A visit to the Boothbay Harbor region can be whatever you want it to be—a peaceful time to refresh your soul in your oceanfront accommodations, an active time boating, fishing, hiking, playing golf and tennis or a family adventure. Come see for yourself why the Boothbay Harbor Region is the soul of the Maine coast. Explore quiet coves, rocky shores, meandering country roads and beautiful lighthouses. The restaurants are plentiful and varied and the food is delicious.
The salt air is not the only thing that is refreshing: the people of Boothbay Harbor pride themselves on turning strangers into friends. Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, a fresh air retreat or an extended sojourn from city life, you will be glad you found Boothbay Harbor.
Pick your season, then come enjoy Maine at its best. Spectacular sunrises herald the new day; tall evergreens march down the rocky coast, June’s lupines and other wildflowers color local fields and roadsides. Warm and sunny July days are tinged with occasional fog to add mystery. The fall color and crisp air of September and October is complemented by fun-filled seasonal festivals.
Explore one of more than a dozen nature trails, try out our world-class golf course, or experience some of the best sea kayaking available anywhere. Our harbor bustles with fishing vessels and pleasure craft in equal numbers, and nothing beats the sight of the schooners heading in from the afternoon trip with their sails bathed in the rosy light of a spectacular sunset -unless of course you’re lucky enough to be on board!
Savor clams and mussels at a table on a dock, the tingle of sun and salt on your skin, and the pleasant expectation of a succulent lobster dinner.
Spring brings new life to the land and renewed activity with the Fishermen’s Festival in April, and the exciting Windjammer Days in June. Regardless of when you come or how long you stay, we are certain you will find why the Boothbay Harbor Region truly is “the soul of the coast.”
