Ogunquit or “beautiful place by the sea” in the indigenous Abenaki language, certainly lives up to its name with beautiful pristine beaches, a picturesque harbour with its colourful fishing boats and its unique draw footbridge.
Stroll or take the old fashioned trolley through the pretty town with its countless, art galleries, quaint shops, and fine restaurants serving fresh lobster and seafood. Take a walk along the Marginal Way, a 1.25-mile path that winds along rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean with stunning views or head to the water for a boat ride or fishing trip.
Perkins Cove has a long history within the town. Formerly the home of shipbuilders and fishermen, the body of water is now a favorite among sightseers and boating enthusiasts. Art galleries, shops, and restaurants line the cove.
