Succulent, buttery lobster has been on my mind. For a few years now, I’ve wanted to take a trip back to New England to see the fall foliage and pursue my desire for lobster.
Years ago, my sister and I met in Boston and traveled up to Maine while staying in bed and breakfasts along the way and enjoying the local cuisine. I don’t recall that she was as willing to seek out lobster as I was but she never complained when we made another meal of seafood our priority. I discovered Lobster Rolls for the first time and am salivating while writing about it now.
My first thought, as a cruising aficionado and agent, would be to combine the trip with a cruise up the coast. I’ve checked available itineraries from various cruise lines. I am excited about cruising anytime, anywhere but for lobster to remain my focus, I think this has to be a land-based trip.
I’m a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of lobster offerings on the coast and since I can’t eat more than a few meals(of lobster) a day I have to be pretty selective about my itinerary. If I make this a 5 day trip and have 10 lobster meals that means I can choose up to 10 restaurants and lobster shacks to visit on my trip. Finding these eateries will determine everything: the airport I arrive at and the car I will rent and the roads I will travel and the places I will stay.
Wish me luck and let me know if you have any favorite lobster places from Massachusetts to Maine!
