Review Boothbay Harbor
This area is absolutely beautiful. It has the best of all worlds, the ocean, the hiking trails, small mountains nearby for hiking, lakes for kayaking and canoeing, fishing, hunting, etc. I couldn't pick a better place to live nature wise! This area is stunning especially when it comes to the ocean, our largest attraction!
There are very few good qualities about this area. Sure there is a good sense of community but the majority of this area are in poverty. There is a huge drug and alcohol problem in this area and not enough jobs for anyone. The wealthy are buying out everything in town making it impossible for the less fortunate to afford more than a single room apartment and eventually everyone who has low income will be forced to move. This area will be made up of summer homes and country clubs. I wouldn't be surprised if in a few years from now this town won't even be open in the winter.
I am lucky to live in an area where the worst we have gotten (knock on wood) are bad winter blizzards. I live in Maine... I can handle a blizzard! Every season is beautiful, bringing truly the best weather I can see (based on national news).
