WHAT TO DO - Bath has sailed into the present with a taste of history and is home to the world-class shipbuilder, Bath Iron Works. At the south end of the city the nationally acclaimed Maine Maritime Museum is often visited by Tall Ships. Downtown Bath has a unique mix of shops, restaurants and galleries. The 19th century brick buildings and narrow streets are reminiscent of an old seafaring town, and was recently deemed one of the best small cities in America! The City of Bath hosts 8 Bed & Breakfast Inns, one major hotel property and the Gothic Revival styled Chocolate Church Arts Center.
WHERE TO STAY With its antique colonial inns and inviting B & B's, it's no surprise that Bath was named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations for 2005, dubbing it a hidden jewel in plain sight. Overnight visitors to Bath will agree that this town simply sparkles. While romantic inns with hundreds of years of history abound, Bath also offers guests a full-service destination resort on the water, and one of the world’s most popular family hotels.
DINING- Bath has an eclectic selection of restaurants. Some are hip, some are healthy, but all are delicious. In this shipbuilding town, taverns serving hearty meals are popular with local residents and visitors alike. As in all our other destinations up and down the coast of mid-coast Maine, Bath has an abundant variety of dining choices: Have lick-your-fingers-good BBQ for lunch, and dine on grilled beef stuffed with fresh Maine crab meat and topped with Béarnaise sauce at a five-star restaurant for dinner!
