2022 Opening Dates For Your Favorite Maine Lobster Pounds
It's that time of year again! Who is hungry for Maine seafood?
As the weather finally starts to warm, the 2022 season for lobster pounds & shacks is upon us across the state.
One of the great things about hitting the open road to explore Maine, is the abundance of mouth watering food that we are blessed to have, from Fort Kent, to Kittery. With this in mind, we did some detective work for you, and found out when some of these seasonal hot spots will be opening for the year.
The first time the term “lobster pound” was used, was on Vinalhaven Island, in 1875 to describe a method of storing live lobster by running fresh seawater through their storage containers. Now, it means let's eat! There is no shortage of places to enjoy delicious Maine seafood, so get ready to strap on the feed bag and enjoy!
