Local Attractions

Historic and picturesque, Brunswick mixes New England charm with a thriving arts and entertainment culture. Visitors can explore more than fifty ethnically-diverse restaurants, distinctive retail shops, Bowdoin College and its museums and beautiful campus, summer musical theater, a year-round Farmers Market, and cultural offerings at the Town's many theaters, galleries, museums, and festive community events—nearly all in walking distance of the vibrant downtown.

The Brunswick Hotel and Tavern is adjacent to the Bowdoin College campus and steps from the heart of downtown Brunswick giving our guests easy access to a variety of events, activities and attractions right outside the hotel doors.  Portland, Maine’s largest city, is approximately thirty minutes from the property offering additional museums, water adventures and dining.  And Freeport is only twenty minutes away featuring LL Bean’s flagship store as well as numerous outlet and shopping opportunities.

Named one of the Top 20 “Best Small Towns in America” by Smithsonian magazine in 2012 because of our high concentration of arts and culture, museums and historical sites per capita, the activities are limitless.
