Hello, I have just spent a marvelous time on your Visit Lubec website and have found it to be an amazing resource! Kudos to whomever put it together and keeps it so updated. My goodness, it is far better than other big city sites I've used! All the links work, graphically it's beautiful, I mean, it's such a Wow.
We live in Ohio and are vacationing in Lubec next week; my husband grew up visiting family friends there and is so excited! I have been skeptical, however, not imagining there would be much to do with our two small boys. Looks like I'm wrong. :) Thank you so much for the wonderful listing of events, the maps, the great commentary....I'm as excited as my husband is, now!
Many thanks,"
Kara R., Ohio

"Thank you so much for including my photographs. We travel to Lubec most summers and stay as long as we can. We enjoy everything about Lubec, the people, library, shops, weather, sea glass and the ocean view doesn't hurt. Maine beats the Oklahoma summer hands down!"

"You provide a valuable resource to us all here in Washington County." -- Patricia C., Eastport, ME

"Just dropping you a note to say I am most grateful for your Web site. I've been researching vacation destinations in the Quoddy Bay area for several days, and yours is the only Web site that provides complete factual information (e.g., average temperatures by month) and organizes information rationally. The town's tourist map is very well done. I learned more about the entire region from your Web site than I did from most other Web sites combined." Mark A., Danbury, CT

"The site looks so good,...plenty there for the tourists and visitors and locals to explore and try." Marty S., Lubec ME

"I am thrilled my photos were included in the slide show. Our trip to Lubec will never be forgotten and we are still holding onto the glow from that visit. We hope to return in the not too distant future. Lubec is truly a very special place."
