This year, celebrate the best of Maine by indulging in fresh Maine Lobster, beautiful coastal Maine lighthouses and luxurious Maine inns with the new Lobsters, Lighthouses & Luxury package offered by the Inns Along the Coast.  The best part about this itinerary is you can experience a Lobsters, Lighthouses and Luxury package in each location – Kennebunkport, Rockland and Bar Harbor – and combine them into one fabulous tour of the Maine coast, or you can enjoy them separately.
