Maine's Mid Coast region's attractions, scenic beauty and slower pace make it a favorite spot for vacationers.
Bath is home of the Bath Iron Works, builders of submarines for the American Navy. You can drink in the history of shipbuilding and maritime history at the Maine Maritime Museum. Bath and neighboring Brunswick also have a large number of boutiques and specialty shops, inns, and restaurants. Brunswick is the home of Bowdoin College, which has a summer music festival on campus with weekly concerts in July and August.
Other activities include Ice fishing, Golfing, the Blue Grass Festival, Scottish Highland Games, Topsham Fair, Clam and Lobster festivals.
Boothbay Harbor and Camden are picture postcard New England harbor villages. They're also major launching points for whale watches, fishing boats and windjammer cruises. Rockland is another popular departure point for the windjammers. In addition, the Mid Coast region is well known for its large number of islands, many of which are accessible by ferry.
