Gardiner is home to more buildings on the historic register than any other city in the area, including the Christ Episcopal Church, Gardiner Railroad Station, Laura Richards House and the entire downtown historic district. You can also study the architecture of such buildings as The Johnson Hall Opera House and Gardiner Public Library, highlighted by a vaulted ceiling and restored stained glass window.

The Kennebec Rail Trail runs between Augusta and Gardiner. You can go walking, running or biking along this stretch of more than 6.5 miles. In town, you can use the boat landing to go boating, kayaking or canoeing on the Kennebec River. In the summer, you can shop at the Gardiner Farmers' Market and take part in the Greater Gardiner River Festival, which features food, music and fireworks.
