Ogunquit

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Marginal Way Walkway and Portland Head Light. Step out of Ogunquit to go to Old Orchard Beach and see Old Orchard Beach, which is approximately 38 minutes away. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Ogunquit Beach, head outdoors with Fisherman's Walk, stroll through Wells Beach, and explore the striking landscape at Perkins Cove.

The Pine Tree State
The easternmost state in New England, Maine features an indented coastline and forested interior, carved eons ago by receding glaciers. Maine includes more lighthouses and quaint resort villages than you could ever hope to explore in a single trip, but the state is also one of the country's most sparsely populated, the majority of its land pristine and uninhabited wilderness. The temperate coastal regions, historically supported by fishing and lobstering, contain most of the state's urban centers and are the most popular spots in the state for holidays. The sea is the focus here, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that water plays an important role in the distinct character of the state, shaping its economy, tourism, cuisine, politics, sports, and art.
