Lobsters & Lighthouses in York Maine

Do not imagine that the coast of Maine is only a summer place. Such a mistake means you could miss out on visiting this beautiful region during the most vivid and romantic time of the year. Maine’s southern coast is a delightful place for dining, shopping, beach walking and romance in winter. First, consider 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 elegant fine dining establishments or waterfront restaurants or in boisterous 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, accented by snow. Button up and join them to watch a glorious winter sunset or to see the stars light up and 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, especially at Christmastime. People who love photography find the Maine lighthouses irresistible.

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.
