“Weekends with Yankee” Episode 408: Ocean Treasures

On this episode of Weekends with Yankee, we head to Provincetown, Massachusetts, to see what makes this eclectic Cape Cod town a beloved travel destination. Next, we visit the flagship restaurant of Luke’s Lobster on a pier in Portland, Maine, where we learn how a tiny lobster roll shop grew into a sustainable seafood company that can trace back to the source every pound of lobster it serves in its 26 U.S. restaurants and growing list of restaurants abroad. We also get a behind-the-scenes peek into the Luke’s Lobster factory in Saco, Maine, which prepares about 32,000 pounds of lobster every day. Then, co-host Richard Wiese explores Salem, Massachusetts, a town with a storied history, but much to offer outside of witches and haunted houses. The day’s activities include a trolley tour around the city stops at the tall ship Friendship and the House of the Seven Gables, and finally a Salem classic – a tarot reading.
