Ogunquit means "beautiful place by the sea" in the language of the Native Americans who inhabited the region long ago, and this remains an accurate description of this holiday destination today.
Popular historic sites such as Marginal Way Walkway and Portland Head Light are in your itinerary. Appreciate the collections at Ogunquit Museum of American Art and Strawbery Banke Museum. Go for a jaunt from Ogunquit to Gloucester to see Dolphin & Whale Watching about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Footbridge Beach, get a taste of the local shopping with PANACHE FINE JEWELRY AND ART GALLERY, kick back and relax at Ogunquit Beach, and explore the striking landscape at Perkins Cove.
