Fall: Last year Bath was named as a Distinctive Destination, and the reason is obvious. The downtown area sits within a stone’s throw of the Kennebec River, and the unique shops are a welcome relief from the sameness of the malls. Being in downtown Bath is like stepping back in time. The store fronts look like the original 1800’s, the streets are lined with wonderful trees, wooden park benchs, reproduction lighting and authentic brick sidewalks. Their is the local drugstore and 5 & dime along Main St and Bath’s quaint downtown area is a charming place to shop. This time of year is a great time to visit historic Bath and come see all that it has to offer. During November and of December, “An Old Fashioned Christmas in Bath” creates a charming atmosphere and plenty of activities for everyone to get into the holiday mood. Don’t miss out on the Christmas Parade which kicks off the holiday shopping season.
