It's time for another "place of the day" to highlight, and since I've been to Maine before I thought it fitting to showcase for a brief moment the Maine Lobster Festival that takes place in Rockland:
Lobster Festival - Rockland, Maine
Maine is known for its Lobster - almost 36 million pounds are caught each year. For 50 years Rockland has hosted an annual lobster festival, full of live music, cooking contests, and even a coronation for the festival. No matter whether you choose steamed or broiled, you have to try at least one while you visit. Only 60 miles from Bangor and 190 miles from Boston, the festival is hosted for five days in late summer. Check out a schedule and more information here.
