The motto of the resort town of Ogunquit, Maine, is "beautiful place by the sea," and with three and a half miles of sheltered white sand beaches, the residents are definitely not lying. Take a walk along the Marginal Way, a path that winds along rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean, or explore the town center on the local public transit - an old fashioned trolley. With art galleries, fresh seafood, and the summer stock Ogunquit Playhouse, the town of Ogunquit is a favorite vacation destination. Ogunquit is a small bustling resort town located along the southeastern seaboard of York County, Maine. With ninety percent of its shoreline open for the public to enjoy, leisure and recreation activities abound on the beautiful white sand beach. Each year thousands of visitors walk the Marginal Way trail that meanders along the rocky coastline for a mile and a quarter from town to the fishing community of Perkins Cove. Both the Town and Perkins Cove retain the charm of a bygone era when artists and fishermen made their living here. Specialty shops, boutiques and both indoor and outdoor dining are just steps away from inns and resorts that welcome visitors.
