The town of Boothbay includes the village center, Boothbay Harbor, as well as East Boothbay. The shoreline of the Boothbay Peninsula is a craggy stretch of inlets where pleasure craft anchor alongside trawlers and lobster boats. Boothbay Harbor is like a smaller version of Bar Harbor—touristy but friendly and fun—with pretty, winding streets and lots to explore. Commercial Street, Wharf Street, Townsend Avenue, and the By-Way are lined with shops and ice cream parlors.
