One of the most delightful towns on the Maine coast is Ogunquit. It is a great place to spend a few days, enjoying the seven-mile-long beach, dining in one of the area’s excellent restaurants, strolling along the Marginal Way, or using the town as a base of operations for an exploration of Maine’s southeast coast. Hang your hat for a while in Ogunquit for at least the following reasons:
1. Perkins Cove is a lovely place to wander. There are several restaurants and bars at which to stop and take a break.
2. Stroll along the Marginal Way to admire the rocky Maine coastline in all its glory.
3. Use Ogunquit as a base for exploring the Southeastern coast of Maine with its many lighthouses and ocean scenery. Below is the iconic Nubble Light in York, Maine.
