This Delightful Gingerbread Spectacular In Maine Is Sweet As Can Be

This time of year calls for hot cocoa, festive lights and lots of sugary treats. Cookies are a must, but there’s one treat that stands out among the rest. You simply cannot celebrate the holiday season without lots of gingerbread! There are lots of ways to enjoy this treat, but we particularly love the gingerbread houses that make this season so special. One of the best displays of this festive treat takes place in Boothbay Harbor at one very special event.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
