Welcome to Maine’s classic little beach town, and one of the East Coast’s favourite family vacation spots. York is known for its relaxing beaches, Short Sands and Long Sands, where you can enjoy the ocean or get wild at the nearby arcades. Take a walk down memory lane to your childhood vacations, or bring your family to start new beach-side traditions.
York Beach is, not surprisingly, all about the sand and sea. With the choice of Short or Long Sands, there’s a beach for everyone. Short Sands is for the more adventurous, or for a family with kids. Short Sands has a Funorama arcade at the end of the beach, where you can play lots of different games. Short Sands also has a boardwalk and a bowling alley — all kinds of entertainment! Long Sands is a much longer stretch of beach (of course) that covers two miles. Long Sands is family friendly, and the best time to go is when the tide is out. You can see the tourist attraction, the Nubble Lighthouse from the sand. The Lighthouse juts out into the ocean, and is postcard-perfect. York also has a carnival and zoo, as well as all kinds of restaurants and shops downtown. Take it easy on your Maine vacation!
Kennebunkport is only a forty minute drive away from York Beach. The classic resort-town is known for being the vacation spot of choice for the Bush family. You can get a peek of the Bush family compound, Walker’s Point. Kennebunk Beach brings all kinds of vacationers no matter the weather, as it’s just as beautiful for a brisk walk as it is for summer fun. Enjoy the white sands on the perfect day trip. Portland is the main city in Maine, where you can find culture as well as beach-town charm. Visit the Portland Museum of Art — the largest and oldest of its kind in Maine, located in the downtown Arts District. Alternatively, visit Casco Bay in the Gulf of Maine for lighthouses and beaches. You can’t go wrong with the quaint Maine lifestyle.
Tripping has a wide selection of beach houses, hotels, and inns that you can find for your vacation. Get your classic New England family beach house, or relax at a luxurious hotel. Get a beachside rental for convenience, or book further into town to be closer to the shops and restaurants.
Everything in York Beach is in relative walking distance. Go from the beach to the shops and restaurants easily. This convenience helps you slow down to the pace of Maine.
