Maine's fertile coastline attracts seafood lovers from all over, and the most enthusiastic can enjoy a day of digging up their own meal. Clamming, or clam digging, involves digging up clams from the tidal mudflats where they live. It's a profitable commercial enterprise, and a fun family activity as a quirky alternative to fishing. The area around Ferry Beach in Scarborough is a good place to try your hand, and a one-day clam digging license is easy to get. When you're finished, you can relax and enjoy a traditional Maine clambake!
