Ogunquit/Wells in April

We are traveling to this area April 9 for a few days, staying at Hampton. I know that week is still off-season, but being that it is also "spring break" week, do businesses that are normally closed tend to open that week? Also, any comments about what shouldn't be missed or where to eat great seafood are welcome. Is April too early for whale-watching? Thanks for all your help.

There will definitely be some restaurants open. The Marginal Way for a nice ocean walk along the rocks and beautiful vistas is great in April. Parking in Ogunquit will be easier than during full season. I love Jonathan's, the Lobster Shack ( a bit rustic) in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, maybe even Barnicle Billy's in Perkins Cove could be open( a real favorite), Roberto's - nice seafood scampi, and so many more. also almost to Kennebunk north up on Rt. 1, I would recommend the Maine Diner for real home cooking,

The below restaurants are all in Perkins Cove, some are more expensive then others but all should fulfill your need for Lobster. I have eaten in them all. MC can be on the pricey side but it’s the class act of the bunch.

Barnacle Billy's opens on April 6th for the 2012 season, you can dine while overlooking the cove and the fleet of Lobster boats.

MC also in Perkins Cove is open year round; dine while you take in the ocean views from this beautiful restaurant.

Lobster Shack might not be open until Mid April.

Jackie’s Too should also be open, great views of the ocean also.

One of my favorite Places is the Fisherman's Catch in Wells, Maine, only about 15min from Oqunquit, some of the best seafood in the area at great prices.
