Brunswick is an ideal place for day trips if you are staying at the Brunswick vacation rentals. There are a variety of things you can do in the span of a day. You can spend a day at the beach or even visit a bluegrass music festival. These are trips which can be easily done in a day and are easy enough. These are perfect especially if you are with family. Here are some fun day trips that you can enjoy.
1. Have a Picnic at White's Beach
Spend a day at this big sandy beach and have a blast with your family. It is ideal for some quiet camping and picnicking. You can even swim in the fresh water. There are facilities available for a cookout too. There are all the available facilities for electricity and water as well. You have to call ahead and reserve in case you are going there with a large company. There is a pavilion too. If you go in July, you can even witness the bluegrass music festival there.
2. Go Kayaking on Blue Meadows
Though that sounds like a challenge, it is not as hard as it sounds. There are a few canoeing shops from which you can rent kayaks. The popular kayaking spot is Blue Meadows River. Though it is called a river, it has the kayaking experience to offer you as well. It is an 8-mile run and a completely tidal experience. You will pass mazes of coves and small islands as the "River" passes into the Atlantic Ocean. There are no boundaries so you can go on for as long as you want. The best time to go kayaking is three hours before and after the high tide. While kayaking, check out the water birds like kingfishers, heron and hawks. While staying at a Boothbay harbor vacation home, this should definitely be on your list.
3. Listen To Bluegrass Music
If you want to sample some of the original bluegrass music, then make sure you go to Brunswick during the month of August. The Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival has been going on for the last three decades. Bluegrass bands come down from all over the world, including Japan and even the Czech Republic. Bill Monroe, legendary pioneer of Bluegrass, has played at this festival as well. Be there to see the fireworks, and sample the great music. You can even spend a day at the park. It is a complete family experience for a fun day trip.
