This is the most iconic lobster shack in Maine. Lines can be very long but totally worth the wait. If your looking for the ultimate lobster roll you've found your place. They put over a lb of fresh picked meat on each roll. The fried zucchini with blue cheese sauce is ridiculously good. You won't go wrong with any choice here. Deb the owner is one of the nicest people on the planet.

The Salt Cod Cafe makes wonderful muffins, sandwiches and soups. The building has been in the same family for generations. It is right next door to H2o Outfitters where you can rent kayaks. Just a wonderful way to spend a beautiful summer day.

Essentials
A local gathering spot and great place to grab a quick sandwich, cup of coffee or drink. My kids think they make really good pizza and make me drive out of the way to get some.

This brewery is crazy cool. They re-purposed the old shooting range on the now decommissioned Navy base into their tasting room. Unlike a lot of other breweries it is family friendly with great outdoor space. They have a constantly rotating tap list. For kids and people who don't drink they have a great local soda on tap.

Parks & Nature
This is by far the NICEST beach in Maine. If you don't go early, don't bother you won't get in. The parking lot is usually full by 10am. Be careful they can have some incredibly aggressive sea gulls. I saw one land on a persons head and steal their sandwich. You also have to watch out for the rip tides which can get pretty strong. There are great tidal pools for kids and the young at heart.

It took five years before anyone told us about this spot - What is so cool is that you can drive directly on to the beach. If you have a low riding car like a Prius - don't go. There are also no bathrooms so keep that in mind.
