Botanical Gardens are a Delight for All Ages

The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, a must see destination, encompass 250 acres of shore front on the mid-coast. The gardens feature spectacular ornamental gardens and miles of waterfront and woodland trails meandering by beautiful plantings, impressive stonework, waterfalls, fountains and scenic views.
