Boothbay: a little slice of coastal heaven

Boothbay encompasses a small area along the Maine coastal and includes the villages of East Boothbay and Trevett. It's a hive of activity during the summer, when travelers descend on the area for some fun in the sun. With its proximity to the sea, it's unsurprising that the town's main industry is fishing and those freshly-caught catches make it onto most restaurants' menus. Days are best spent on the beach with the family or grabbing some water sports equipment and paddling along the beautiful waterways. If the weather takes a turn, there's no shortage of attractions like the aquarium to dive into.

Activities

Paddle along at your own pace in Boothbay

Most of Boothbay's things to do involve the surrounding waterways. You can hop on rented kayaks to spend sunny days paddling around the islands and harbor or, if that sounds like too much effort, see this beautiful part of Maine from the back of a traditional wooden schooner, on one of the daily high-season cruises. You can't truly say you've been to Maine until you've experienced the time-old tradition of lobstering and if angling is your thing, bring your rod and set up on the banks to cast the line in search of a big one.
