Winter,Spring,Summer & Fall: Brunswick is known for the Naval Air Station but, there are plenty of things to do and see for visitors of all ages. Home to Bowdoin College and within the walls of this campus you will find the Maine State Music Theater which has been offering show goers some of the best live musical performances for over 40 years.

Inside this museum visitors will find a great collection of the explorers original equipment as well as historic photos. Another spot to check out while you are in town is the historic Fort Andros. Inside this restored mill you will find shops, restaurants and even a movie theater. There is a great antique shop that is choke full of some great finds ranging from furniture to jewelry and everything in between. After browsing around the mall for a while take a walk across the bridge into Topsham and head to the Sea Dog Brewing Company for lunch. They have a great deck that overlooks the river and its fun to watch the fish jump and the water rush over the damn. Blueberry Ale is in season come summer so it’s the perfect drink on a hot summer day. Once you are finished with your lunch a trip down the river walk. This pathway along the Androscoggin River is a scenic way to enjoy some time outside. Remember, Brunswick is not far from historic Bath and Portland is only thirty minutes south so it’s a great place to spend the day or part of your day on your way to other destinations.
