Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is absolutely stunning! So many types of flowers, gardens, trees, water features and enough room to enjoy a leisurely day even if they are busy. Do wear comfortable walking shoes, especially if you wish to see the whole property. If you are unable to walk that far, you will see very beautiful gardens within easy reach of the main building. We visited on an unseasonably hot day, so we toured half the garden, then went to the on-site restaurant for lunch to cool down enough to see the rest. Unlike some "museum" or "tourist trap" restaurants, this one was surprisingly good with healthy choices. Be sure to bring your camera; your Macro setting will get a workout. The children's garden is enchanting, as are the fairy houses. There are also many interesting scuptures throughout the gardens.
