During the warmer weather take some time to check out the River Walk which runs from Tophsam to Brunswick along the banks of the Adroscoggin River. This scenic walking path is a great way to get outside and burn off some steam. Bikers and roller bladers are also welcome on the walking path so pack your stuff and go for a walk. Brunswick also has some great spots to enjoy the coast whether it be Thomas Point Beach or a short drive to Popham there are plenty of spots to enjoy the coast. If you are looking for a quiet spot to enjoy a little piece of the Maine coast, take a drive to the end of Mere Point Road until you come to the boat landing. Be sure to pack a blanket and a picnic basket and make you way to the edge of the water and enjoy view! A trip to Brunswick would not be complete without a visit to one of the area’s icons, Fat Boys! This nostalgic restaurant is a throwback to earlier day drive-ins where the food was brought right to your car by waitresses on roller skates. Although the food may not make the ten healthiest places to dine in the area, it’s fun and a nice treat. Bowdoin College sits in the heart of downtown Brunswick and is a hub of interesting things to do. If you like to skate, be sure to check out the indoor skating arena which offers free skate to the public.
