Lobsters & Lighthouses in York Maine

Maine’s southern coast is a delightful place for dining, shopping, beach walking and romance; this region truly captures the hearts of people around the world. First, imagine the fresh Maine fare, like lobster in a creamy bisque or surrounded by clams, corn and roasted potatoes in the classic lobster dinner, served at picturesque waterfront restaurants or lively family eateries.

The famous beaches -- York's Harbor Beach, Long Sands Beach, Short Sands Beach, Cape Neddick Beach or Kittery's Fort Foster Beach -- contain a community of walkers and explorers who appreciate the beauty of sand, surf. Daytime is glorious; you should get out, too, to watch a glorious sunset or to see the stars light up the night.

Plan to visit the famous Maine lighthouses. The Nubble (Cape Neddick) Light in York is on an island close to shore and people celebrate it with gusto from neighboring Sohier Park. People who love photography find the Maine lighthouses irresistible. Shopping in the York region yields fun and great bargains for everyone in the family.

Popular lodgings are beach and ocean resorts, with sweet services and amenities. This is a cozy place for romantic getaways; enjoy the outdoors and then head off to dinner & music at the delightful Jonathan’s of Ogunquit.
