“Our family greatly appreciated all the tourist-information efforts by the Chamber of Commerce (and Maine Dept of Tourism), which resulted in an absolutely wonderful vacation last month! We live in Washington State and decided last March to fly to New Hampshire in July to see an aunt for a couple days, after which we thought "someplace in Maine" for 5 or 6 days might be nice. Because of your superb marketing, we decided on Boothbay Harbor and we are delighted to have done so! My husband, our 5-year-old, and I all want to return someday (Ezra is desperate to return soon as he can't duplicate his lobster experience here on the west coast!). – Teresa Barry, Washington State, USA
