Boothbay Harbor, Maine: Century-old Footbridge and Dockside Dining
The most scenic way to get across the harbor—when you’re not taking a boat—is by walking along the historic Boothbay Harbor Footbridge. Its 1,000 feet of wooden planks have spanned the waters for more than a century. On either side of the harbor, you’ll find all the hallmarks of an old-fashioned New England town: dockside chowder houses, tiny ice cream parlors, and colorful sweets shoppes that sell saltwater taffy and Swedish fish. At Boothbay Railway Village, vintage locomotives steam down a model railroad, and you can check out a 1911 Model T, a Rolls Royce, and a 1957 Pontiac Thunderbird. Boothbay Opera House has been the big music venue downtown since 1894; it still hosts live bluegrass, Celtic, and country performances.
Sailboats, kayaks, and schooners are popular ways to get around the harbor. By day, you can take a boat ride to see several of Maine’s famous lighthouses in the distance. As night falls, schooners skim the waters to catch the best view of the setting sun. All year, nature lovers can explore the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens—250 acres that contain butterfly gardens, waterfalls, and tree-lined trails.
