Where to go...

Ruggedly beautiful and remote enough to keep it from being overrun with summer sun-seekers, the Maine coast is nirvana for those with a taste for the rustic—and fresh lobster

Row of colorful taps for Rising Tide craft beers

Rising Tide Brewery Go where the locals go—in microbrew-crazy Portland, that means Rising Tide. Stop by for a Spinnaker hefeweizen on the patio, or try the latest in their series of Soundings “experimental” IPAs

Red paneled restaurant on dock by water

Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster Co. Embark on your own quest for the ultimate lobster roll—or skip the search and head straight to the place that serves the best in Maine
