If you follow this blog or my posts on social media, you know I love where I live.
Brunswick, Maine is a great place to live for so many reasons. I am fortunate enough to live one block from Maine Street, which means I can walk just about anywhere. I can walk to get groceries, get my haircut, eat at amazing restaurants, shop for clothes or sustainable goods, catch a movie or a theatrical production, go bowling, listen to music, meet a client for coffee, or buy antiques.
I am reminded of why I live in my town every time I walk down the street. Rather than explain it all in words, I thought I would take you for a stroll down Maine Street, Brunswick through pictures.
Maine Street Brunswick is colorful and vibrant.
Brunswick boasts the widest main street in Maine. With several crosswalks along the way, it’s very pedestrian (and dog!) friendly.
The architecture is very cool. Many of the buildings are over 100 years old. I’ve always liked the Bank of America building.
You never know what you’ll find in Brunswick. Even the side streets have hidden treasures.
No chain stores or restaurants here. We prefer local and fresh. You can even pick oregano from a dresser drawer!
It’s hard not to get lured into the fun shops.
With so many restaurant options, it’s hard to choose where to eat.
All the stores, restaurants and coffee shops have fun signs out in the summer.
The Bowdoin Art Museum and Maine State Music Theatre provide some culture.
Every good downtown has a big park where people gather and play.
You can find a farmer’s market on Tuesdays and Fridays on the Brunswick Mall in the summer, and concerts in the gazebo on Wednesday evenings. In the winter, the town floods the mall and creates an ice rink!
Of course, it wouldn’t be Maine without lobstah!
This is all just the tip of the iceberg. I took these photos during a short walk on a very hot summer day. You really have to visit to experience the awesomeness of my town.
