Brunswick has plenty to offer including great restaurants, record and CD stores, two movie theaters, art galleries, golf courses, bowling alleys and more. Midcoast Maine offers outlet shopping in Freeport and great seacoast beaches. Portland, a vibrant city with a small-town feel, has museums to explore, shops to browse, as well as concerts, professional sports teams and pubs to check out. And a couple of hours in a car will put you in Boston, Acadia National Park, or some of Maine's best recreational areas.
