I am planning their trip to Maine in August (their anniversary). I am "packaging" the trip as gift. They aren't very active, so the emphasis will be on beautiful views. Any opinions about the Lobster Festival in Rockland? I was considering a hotel stay in Boothbay Harbor because it is mid-way between Rockland for the festival and Freeport for shopping. Any recommendations for a place with fantastic views, not too stuffy-but not too loud either, with a restaurant and pool? Any opinions about Linekin Bay Resort?
Also, any other suggestions for whale watching tours? Clambakes? Any other suggestions for low exertion outings?
Since this is their 50th wedding anniversary gift from their children, I'm feeling the pressure to "make it perfect".
