      No this is a travel question. Tomorrow I am heading down from Bar Harbor to Boston; the person I am with loved Bar Harbor and wants to stop at similar places on the way to down.

      This is not the most easiest way to navigate so I thought I'd ask here. Are there any worthwhile stops on the way - she doesnt care if it is a tourist trap or local gem.

      Lived up in Maine for a while and went to The Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design in Kennebunkport. There is a place called "The Landing Store" on your way into Kennebunkport have the BEST Lobster rolls going for a decent price. Huge chunks of claw meat--they do it right! There is no where to sit and eat--except maybe a bench outside--but this place rocks!!. Their subs are awesome too!


      http://www.thelandingstore.com/


      If you want good Lobster rolls AND a scenic view? I'd go here: http://lobstershacktwolights.com/


      Hope you can try one of them!

      Also, in Freeport, Gritty McDuffs is a great place for Beer, food, etc.

      You can always go to Red's for Lobster Rolls on Rt. 1 in Wiscasset--but everybody goes there.

      The Landing Store Rocks!! u won't be disappointed!!

      I'll have to go back for these two. The Lobster Shack looks well..incredible, a must go for me.

      Kennebunkport is neat. Arrived at night so didnt really know what the heck was going on.

      Thanks for the quick responses to my crisis. I came across as quite knowledgable

      Think I'll take a break from the lobster and blueberry pancakes for a while.

      (Dont know whats with the blueberry pancake craze but if someone figures a way to combine the two into a regional dish I am sure it would do quite well...)

      A former colleague at another compant that lived in NC had a blueberry farm in ME, oddly enough. He showed up at an industry coalition meeting, and his hands were purple.

      I see you have been in New England.

      Vermont is known as the land of Subaru drivers.
