“A laid-back village far from busy Route 1, Boothbay Harbor features authentic charm, a working waterfront, drop dead natural beauty, and a great mix of restaurants, cultural events, and artisans. It’s surrounded by islands and lighthouses, while the village itself shines, thanks to brick sidewalks, handsome hand-painted signs and a gentle hilly terrain.” -Downeast Magazine
