Nice stroll through the streets and museum is nice
After the walk through, either shop or leave
A nice trip through the old times and antique shopping
If you want stunning fresh, delicious and organic food, there's only one place to be in Bath on a Saturday morning between 8:30 AM and noon. The Farmers' Market stretches along the Kennebec, with lots of little tents and booths where everything from flowers to fowl is being sold. Some don't-miss items: hand-crafted cheeses (try City of Ships, a...more
The town is "Staged" for tourists to come and shop until you run dry. They have 40-50 shops to go into and about 15-20 eateries. The town itself is rather nice and shopping may not be so bad after all. The main strip of these old buildings from early 1900's is a real treat to stroll through.more
The Winter Street is no longer a church use, but a town activity building. It is from 1843 and is depicting Gothic style of that era. It is at 880 Washington across from the park. The Chocolate church is in more disrepair and talk is to maybe tear it down. That also is from 1857 and Gothic sytle. Chocolate church is 47 by 88 feet and has an 18...more

My friends tend to enjoy gourmet fare, so I was a little surprised when it turned out that we were going to be eating our Friday evening meal at The Cabin. It is an unprepossessing little place which might well have been a cabin in a previous existence, situated directly across from the imposing steel walls of the Bath Iron Works. Inside (and it is always warm there, say my hosts, even in the dead of winter), the air is redolent of marinara sauce and melted cheese and that lovely, yeasty smell of good dough. There are three rooms full of booths, generally full of chattering diners, and the decor tends to be early Maine -- a panorama of the mouth of the Kennebec on one wall, a replica of a wooden ship on another. But all conversation stops when one of the wait staff comes pell-mell out of the kitchen, bearing a fresh, hot pie and shouting the name of the lucky recipient.
Favorite Dish: We had a perfectly delicious white pizza topped with shrimp, clams and calamari after enjoying a bountiful Greek salad that wasily served three. But my favorite was the homemade meat lasagna with hot sausage. Don't miss it!
The visitor center is supposed to be open Monday-Saturday from 10-5. It is located just off Hwy1 and esy sign to find in the old train station. Not the day I got there. They may even close down for the fall/winter season. A direction map shows whixh sites are on which side of Hwy 1 that splite the town. The bridge in the picture is really a "bridge to nowhere". It terminates at the end with no connection. I am not sure who would pick up teh bridge at the other end but if they did, down you go.
Fish markets are, at least in America, a dying breed. But this is just like the ones I used to visit...tile floor (usually wet), big holding tanks of lobsters, and a case chock full of wild-caught finnies, crab cakes, and small containers of picked lobster and crab meat, all under the careful eye of the seafaring proprietors, Ben and Kevin.Just ask...more
Okay, I can hearing you thinking...why would a tourist want to visit a shop with various cooking implements for sale? Stop that! Perhaps you aren't a cook, so you don't understand the lure of a truly spectacular kitchen shop. One that has pans in every conceivable size. One that stocks really good quality dishclothes. One that also has wine, and...more
Pay attention to the architecture....pure New England and beautiful! This is the Bath City Hall.
Fondest memory: What I really love to see.....New England architecture!
