Wife wants a trip to drive part of the east coast and hit lobster shacks and seafood restaurants. Whats the best time of year price wise, people wise ( the less the better )?

And any cool places for a long 4 day weekend type trip.

Thanks

Thanks daury

Thats the kind of info i was looking for, out here crab is a winter catch although one can catch it during other months on a sport license. And i know there is no nonresident lobster fishing for sport.

Would early May or mid September still have places open to avoid the crowd?

3 times a day? were u buying it reasonable or just biting the bullit? Once every few weeks is rich enough for this old stomache.
Been planning this trip with my son.

Throw in some fried clams and you're dining like a king. You could walk up the Maine coast stepping on nothing but the decks of lobster shacks. US Route 1 runs the entire coast and it feels like a miles long logjam in the summertime with the tangle of tourists. You shouldn't have a hard time finding lobster no matter the season with a bit of asking around.

The whole eastern shore from Rockland up thru Belast and Bar Harbor. Seafood restaurants everywhere and some places you can buy right off the docked boats.
