Summer is finally here, and now is the perfect time to escape the heat and go out on the open water.

In the heart of Midcoast Maine, Rockland is known as the “Lobster Capitol of the World”, home of the Maine Lobster Festival that will take place August 3rd through the 7th this year. People from all across the country are attracted to the famous lobster festival featuring 20,000 pounds of fresh Maine lobster along with live entertainment on the waterfront.
Then, the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show takes place August 12th through 14th – giving boat lovers another excuse to travel to Rockland, Maine next month.
