The Bath-Brunswick Region

Welcome to the year-round variety and beauty of the Bath-Brunswick region... some have even said "The best of the Maine coast." History, mystery, music, and art; outlets, outboards, big ships, and beaches await you. Don't forget lobster with corn on the cob and clams on the side...and breathe deeply!

The region consists of fourteen communities having a rich historical heritage dating back to the early 1600's. At one time, the Kennebec River, which splits the region, even served as a border between France and England...it was not a peaceful place! Not until the 1720's would the fear of attacks be diminished and truly permanent communities begin. The sea has always been a reason to stay, however. Fortunes great and small were made by building ships and trading all over the world. Each of the communities demonstrates the fruits of those labors with the remarkable architecture preserved and an essence of character which still persists.

Brunswick, a community of some 21,000, and Bath, a city of about 10,000, are the two anchors of the region. Brunswick is now perhaps best known for the location of Bowdoin College, founded in 1792, while Bath has been building ships since the early eighteenth century. Both have long and colorful histories, and much is persevered to whet your interests. If you prefer the atmosphere provided by communities such as Bath and Brunswick, you will find a convenient variety of restaurants accommodations, and places of interest and amusement to fill your days and nights.

Wherever you are in the region, there are many things to see and do! Take a scenic train ride from Wiscasset to Newcastle and back; the kids will love it. If beaches are a must, don't miss three of the best: Reid State Park in Georgetown (with an especially good area for small children), the magnificent expanse of Popham Beach State Park in Phippsburg, and Thomas Point Beach in Brunswick. Chartered and scheduled boat trips cruise the coastline, inlets, and rivers for you to enjoy. Fish from the beaches or an isolated rocky headland. By reservation, you can also play golf at one of the three courses in the region. Please accept an invitation to see coastal Maine at its best!
