WHERE TO SEE STUNNING FALL FOLIAGE IN MIDCOAST MAINE



As summer starts to wind down, Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort starts looking forward to the beauty of fall. Our Edgecomb resort on the shores of the Sheepscot River is the perfect slice of heaven for anyone looking to enjoy a tranquil but memorable fall getaway. There is no shortage of autumn activities to enjoy during your visit, including getting in one last whale watching tour or checking out fall festivals. However, one adventure that everyone visiting Maine during this season needs to experience is taking in the picturesque fall foliage.


THE 3 BEST SPOTS TO SEE FALL COLORS IN MAINE

Maine starts taking on its fall hues in September and generally reaches its peak around mid to late October. The best way to see where the best colors are is by looking at a foliage report. There are several places throughout Boothbay Harbor that are perfect for an afternoon of leaf peeping.

  1. Let four wheels take you on a leaf-peeping adventure on a scenic drive. One great drive, the Midcoast Ramble, starts in Brunswick and heads along Route 1, where it splits off into countless detours, including Boothbay Harbor. The route ends in Camden, where you can hike to the top of Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park for sweeping views.

  2. Open through October, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is a fun place to experience fall foliage. The surrounding trees and shrubs take on warm hues, making the annuals and other plants pop even more. The property is also decorated for the season with corn stalks, pumpkins, and gourds.

  3. Perhaps some of the best places for fall foliage are at the numerous nature preserves near the resort. Lobster Cove Meadow and the connecting Appalacchee Preserve attract countless visitors yearly. Another great option is the Colby Preserve, which gives you a glimpse of fall colors on the shoreline of the Damariscotta River.
