Bath, Maine is an economic engine of the midcoast thanks to the Bath Iron Works.
BIW is a prime contractor to the Defense Department for ‘complex surface combatants.” In English, they make destroyers for the Navy.
Bath has also been named One of the Best Small Towns in America. Some might say it's ‘sleepy,’ hence a nighttime shot taken last week during the weeklong July 4th celebrations.
While some passers by might focus on the “small town” description, they would be missing the town’s charm, history, upscale retail and fine restaurants. Our favorite - Solo Bistro.
