Relax in the New Year in Brunswick

While the holidays are a fun time spent with family and friends, it can also be a busy and even stressful season. When the holidays are finally over, some of us feel like we need a holiday from the holiday! Start off 2016 the right way with a peaceful and relaxing trip to Brunswick, Maine, and enjoy the local shops in this town that once counted Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Nathaniel Hawthorne among its residents.

Brunswick offers a variety of activities and attractions to help you unwind and calm down after a busy holiday season. The beginning of January is a great time to visit, too. Bowdoin College students are on winter break for much of the month, meaning that you can enjoy smaller crowds during the month. From Bowdoin College to several local art and music museums, there is something to do for everyone in your family. Even if you’re just walking downtown along Maine Street, you’ll find a variety of restaurant options as well as great local stores and businesses.

The weather right now is perfect for this time of year, and hopefully it holds for just a little while longer. With the moderate temps, you can enjoy being outdoors without freezing. There are multiple bike trails throughout the town that are still open, and when the snow and cold does move in, there are many great places to cross-country ski, snowshoe and ice skate around town.

Even though we have some time before the new year begins, now is the time to start planning your first trip in 2016. Brunswick offers a variety of activities for you and your travel companions and January is a great time to visit.
