During Maine's summer tourist season, people "from away" flock to Maine to visit and have some of the best seafood in the country.

Lobster is obviously one of the big choices, of course.

According to mainelobsternow.com, the first Maine lobster catch was recorded in 1605. That's over 400 years ago!

The website also states that lobster is actually healthy for you, so eat up if you're a fan.

Tourists when looking for a seafood place will stick close to the coastal towns like Kennebunk, York, Portland, Rockland and Bar Harbor. It seems logical that the best seafood would be at the coast, but that's not necessarily true.
