The Taste of Maine.... A Must For Visitors!

The rugged Maine coastline may be world famous but one of the location perks that comes with a picturesque ocean view is the fresh seafood fished straight from the sea to the plate. The Maine Lighthouse Museum are staunch supporters of local fisherman and restaurants. A particularly famous and, unsurprisingly, our own well-loved dish is fresh-caught Maine lobster. Locals should be well aware by now that consuming locally caught lobster is not only a delicious treat but an ideal way to support our fisherman. Nowadays its even possible to get Maine Lobster delivery! Of course, when you are in town its a must to swing by the museum and say hello!
