Even though you'll already have had a number of hours in the car getting up here from Boston, once you get to Boothbay Harbor, I'd take the short ride out Route 96 toward East Boothbay, and keep going until you literally get to the end of the road at Ocean Point. Some great ocean views and if you happen to get there at the right time in the evening the sunset over the water can be fantastic!
