Come For The Lobster
Maine is fortunate to enjoy a unique combination of geographic circumstances that make it the ideal environment for lobster to flourish. Extremely deep, extremely cold, and extremely salty ocean water come together to provide lobster everything they need to grow and multiply with reckless abandon, making Maine the best place on planet earth to find and eat lobster!
It is hard to find any restaurant in Maine that does not serve at least one lobster dish, which ought to testify to it’s quality. Even those who live in Maine, and are exposed to it every day, still demand it from anywhere they get food.
Of all these restaurants, perhaps none are more famous than Red’s Eats. Red’s might seem like little more than a dinky food stand just off the highway, were it not for the near-constant line stretching down the road. Open mid-april to mid-october, Red’s will regularly serve well over 8 tonnes of lobster in their 5 months of business a year.
Maine lobster is not only reputed to be the best available on planet earth, but is incomprehensibly cheap when compared to typical Ottawa prices. Lobster rolls here typically cost around $25-30, and are therefore a luxury food item. In Maine, you can get bigger and better ones for $9!

Once you’ve had your fill of lobster (for the night at least), it’s time to take the RV or Trailer somewhere for the night. Located in a similar geographical region to Ontario, you certainly won’t be struggling to find options!
