More About
Ogunquit, ME

About OgunquitOgunquit was called “beautiful place by the sea” by the Abenaki Indians, who were early inhabitants of this region. The town is 15 miles north of the New Hampshire border, with a 3-mile sandy beach stretching northward and more than a mile of picturesque rocky shore to the south. The Ogunquit River, a 2-mile tidewater river, parallels the beach and is separated from it by sand dunes.

Shore Road leads to Perkins Cove, a quaint working harbor with a footbridge spanning its entrance. Perkins Cove offers specialty shops, waterfront restaurants and art galleries as well as fishing, lobstering and whale-watching opportunities. The “Marginal Way” is a mile-long scenic footpath along the granite shoreline leading from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit's village and beach.

Ogunquit is a popular summer resort, especially among artists. The Village Center has shops, theaters and parks lining its streets. The Ogunquit Playhouse, a half-mile south of town on US 1, has presented exceptional summer theater since the 1930s; phone (207) 646-5511. Art exhibits are held throughout the summer months at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art and the Barn Gallery. Trolleys offer transportation around town from June to October.
