There is so much to do. This is the place to come if you want a sea tour or a good meal. There is plenty of parking. There is always something going on in the summer season.

I assumed you meant for a dinner out. The fish market on the waterfront has a variety of fresh fish to buy and take home.
I'm visiting the middle of March, is there anything open at that time of year?

Yes, everything will be open. Except for some beaches/resorts, Maine never closes!
Do you remember which store had those 9.99 shirts? Thanks!

I think it was called Blue Lobster. It is on commercial street right across the street from the tour ticket booth. It is on the corner. They had a pretty good selection as well as some $6.00 t-shirts. Good luck.
