I had seen this garden advertised in a couple of places, and decided it would be good "filler" for a trip to the coast of Maine, if we had extra time. It turned out to a be an amazing day!
It's a bit of a drive to Boothbay Harbor from Portland, but the drive takes you through charming small towns, with lots of shops and diversions if you choose.
The garden is relatively new, and just beautifully put together! Even though the parking lot was full the day we were there, we never felt as though the facility was crowded. It was the perfect day to stroll through the themed gardens along the riverfront and in the woods!
The staff was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable, and the cafe was just as pleasant an experience as the rest of the garden!
This is definitely a hidden gem on the coast of Maine!
