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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Marginal Way Walkway and Strawbery Banke Museum. You'll get in some beach time at Ogunquit Beach and Hampton Beach State Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Ogunquit: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Gloucester) and Portland Head Light (in Cape Elizabeth). There's more to do: wander the streets of Perkins Cove and visit a coastal fixture at Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse.

Plan my trip to Ogunquit with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Drive from Bar Harbor to Ogunquit in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus; or take a bus. In August in Ogunquit, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 54°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) early enough to drive back home.
