South Coast region offers inns, resorts for a memorable romantic getaway

The South Coast of Maine, with its legendary towns of Ogunquit, Wells, Kennebunkport, and Old Orchard Beach, provide a gateway to Maine for much of New England. In summer, the South Coast towns are lively with sun, sand, and fun, and ideal for a romantic weekend getaway. Waterfront hotels, motels, and inns are abundant, and some even offer hyper luxuries, like Jacuzzis. Resorts offer some quiet after a day of beach, boardwalk, and, if you're lucky, a lobster roll for lunch.
