Columbus Botanical Garden Visits Maine

June 19 - 24, 2016

Dear CBG Supporters and Friends,

Please join us for another in our series of special garden tours to one of our country’s pristine horticultural areas. From Sunday, June 19, to Friday June 24th, 2016, we’ll tour the coastal gardens and villages of the state of Maine. All our garden visits are not finalized; however, the following itinerary will give you details of the plans to date.

We begin in Bar Harbor where our rooms are in the Oceanfront Lodge at the Bar Harbor Inn and Spa. With the shops and restaurants only minutes away, it’s Bar Harbor’s best location. We’ll all get together our first night for a welcome reception before dinner in the hotel’s famous Reading Room. We’ll spend two nights here exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, before heading south along Maine’s spectacular rocky coastline. On that travel day, we’ll stop for lunch in Boothbay Harbor followed by a visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.

Headquarters for the next three nights in Portland is the recently renovated Westin Portland Harborview Hotel, where our rooms again have bay and harbor views. The next two days will be spent visiting gardens and exploring this area. Thursday afternoon we’ll head to the Gulf of Maine to learn about lobster fishing. Yes, you can have fresh lobster for dinner!

Thank you and call (706-663-2171) or email (travelata@aol.com) with any questions or if you need additional information. As always this is an inclusive deluxe tour program; the only meals not included are one dinner and two lunches. Please mail or fax (706-225-2551) your Reservation Form at your first convenience and remember a portion goes to support the CBG!

Sincerely,
Geoff Robertson
