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.

Things to do

Aquariums and botanical gardens in Boothbay

Off the water, you'll find an equally impressive list of things to do near your Boothbay vacation rental. Botanists won't be disappointed by the 250-acre Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, which is filled with native and exotic flora. The Maine State Aquarium is great for kids who can discover what the ocean life is all about. Alternatively, history buffs with an interest in railroads shouldn't skip the Boothbay Railway Village. If you're in town at the right time, you might be lucky enough to catch one of the many annual festivities from Windjammer Days to Fisherman's Festival.

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.

Weather

Boothbay is a hive of activity in summer

The peak season firmly sits in the summertime period, when the sun is almost always shining and the temperatures reach the high 70s. You won't be the only one with the idea of booking a Boothbay vacation rental between July and August though. Families with kids off school descend upon the town for a break from the city. If you'd rather save your bucks for the water sports or the seafood restaurants and you don't mind a cooler temperature, consider visiting in spring or fall instead, when the crowds have all but disappeared.

Natural features

Keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales in Boothbay

Even if wildlife spotting isn't for you, it's impossible not to come to face-to-face with coastal critters. One of the most special is spotting puffins, the only place in the United States where it is possible to do so and best done from one of the daily cruises. While you're at sea, keep your eyes peeled for sightings of magnificent humpback whales, which swim into the harbour from mid-April. Back on land, birdwatchers will be happy with the 140 species of recorded native and migratory birds which can be seen around the waterways and marshes near your Boothbay vacation rental.
