The dramatic beauty of Maine’s MidCoast region has long attracted artists, writers and musicians to the fishing villages and offshore islands that dot the coastline. Outstanding maritime museums in Bath and Belfast reflect the region’s seafaring heritage and Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay is a spectacular setting for sculpture displays. You’ll find world-class art collections at The Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Brunswick and the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. The Maine FiberArts community showcases work at their Visitor Center Gallery in Topsham; and regular art walks in MidCoast towns are a great introduction to the arts scene. Festivals celebrate everything from lobster to windjammers, blues music to rural living. And for unmatched fall foliage tours, take the train between Brunswick, Bath and Rockland. Plan to spend time in two designated Distinctive Destinations in the MidCoast region, Bath and Rockland.
