This October 2009 photo courtesy of Robert Mitchell for the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens shows a natural wooden bridge in the Lerner Garden of the Five Senses during fall foliage at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine. An exhibit of Edward Hopper's paintings of Maine is breaking attendance records at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, but it's just one of three topnotch shows at museums around the state this summer and fall. Combine a trip to see all three _ the others are an Andrew Wyeth show at the Farnsworth in Rockland and a photography exhibit at Colby College in Waterville _ with shopping in Freeport, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, leaf-peeping, dining and maybe a trip to a spa, and you've got an ideal itinerary for a September getaway.
