I'm from Chicago and need some advice on Maine coastal areas. My fiance and I are desperately looking to get away from our wedding plannings. We have the Sept 24th weekend free for a 3-day weekend. We have always wanted to visit the Maine coastal area for sights and our own lobster tour. Is the timing too late for lobster season?
I was thinking of flying from Chicago into Portland. Is that the best airport to fly into for the mid coastal area?
Do you all have recommendations on where to stay that are near the coastal lobster pounds? B&B would be romantic!
We were thinking that we can hit up some lobster places for steamed lobsters and lobster rolls. I was looking at Red's Eats, 5 Island Lobster, etc...
