Visiting Bath on a Rainy Day

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Our guests who have been staying the past couple days are experiencing some inclement weather so I began thinking of a Rainy Day Ideas list for our guests.  Here are some things I came up with.

Museums – We have great museums in the area – Maine Maritime Museum right here in town and in Brunswick Bowdoin College’s Museum of Art, The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and the Joshua Chamberlain Museum.  All are a great way to spend a few hours out of the rain!

Shopping – Bath’s downtown is great!  I have written about all our great stores before but you truly can find something for everyone.  From sweets at the Bath Sweet Shoppe to home decor at Ornament, antiques at Brick Store or New England Antiques, and a must stop at Now You’re Cooking.

Relaxing Treats – After shopping, stop in for an afternoon treat at Cafe Creme for a cup of coffee or tea and a pastry or try Dot’s Ice Cream for a cone.  Both have free WiFi so you can do a little surfing of events happening in the area that maybe Amy and Mark missed telling you about.

Movies – Bath itself does not have it own movie theater but several organizations sponsor movies throughout the year including the Patten Free Library and Sagadahoc Preservation.  In Brunswick, there are several movie spots including a Regal Cinema, Eveningstar Cinema and Frontier Cafe.  If you prefer, you can curl up on our library couch and watch one of the great DVD’s we have available for guests or stop in at River Bottom Video downtown and pick up a couple DVD’s.

Of course you can end your rainy afternoon with our complimentary tea, a well deserved nap and then off to dinner at one of Bath’s great restaurants.
