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.
You'll get in some beach time at Ogunquit Beach and Old Orchard Beach. Get some historical perspective at Marginal Way Walkway and Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse. Explore Ogunquit's surroundings by going to W. Robert Paine Gallery (in Kennebunkport) and Portland Head Light (in Cape Elizabeth). And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Perkins Cove, explore the activities along Sebago Lake, and admire the masterpieces at Ogunquit Museum of American Art.

Plan my Ogunquit trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
