Ogunquit – A beautiful place by the sea
Located along scenic Route 1 at the tip of Southern Maine, the little town of Ogunquit is easy to get to and hard to leave. Known for its Indian summers, visitors who aren’t eager to pack away their flip-flops or sunhats flock to Ogunquit in the fall to enjoy a few more months of sunny weather and warm waters. Whether you’re looking for a romantic hideaway for two, a getaway with friends or a fun-filled vacation for the whole family, no one will be able to resist Ogunquit’s idyllic sun baked beaches, and the town’s old world charm.
After a scenic stroll along the waterfront, check out the other exciting attractions Ogunquit has to offer, such as Perkins Cove and the Marginal Way. Originally a fishing village, Perkins Cove offers a charming seaside experience and a glimpse into Ogunquit’s fascinating heritage. From the manually operated drawbridge to the many working fishing and lobster boats that fill the quaint harbor, Perkins Cove encapsulates all that is wonderful about New England. Visitors looking for undisturbed panorama can take a cruise on one of the touring or sailboats and capture the real “ocean view.”
The Marginal Way is the town’s famous scenic walk along the rocks and cliffs of Ogunquit’s oceanfront, leading from Perkins Cove to downtown. Dotted with shaded benches and complete with stunning views of the sea, it is no wonder people from all over the country gravitate to this special place.
