The gardens are lovely any time of the year and well worth the scenic drive to Boothbay Harbor. Winter is perhaps when they shine the brightest, as the gardens are artfully illuminated with millions of lights for the annual Gardens Aglow event. This is a must-see spectacle of dazzling holiday…

This may be the best botanical garden you ever visit. Spectacular local plantings, a children's garden with bridges and touchable plants, a fairy village in the forest and a model train setup to remember.

Large gardens for all ages to enjoy. Note: Nov after Thanksgiving to end of year- magnificent light display. Boothbay area has much to offer.
