Local Area Guide: Things to do / Activities / Attractions

There is a reason they call it "A beautiful place by the sea". The Ogunquit area has everything for every type of traveler. Theater-lovers flock to the many playhouses for the extended summer stock performances. Visitors rave about the assortment of galleries, boutiques, gift shops, and day spas. Discriminating diners have an abundant selection of fine restaurants to satisfy nearly every taste- including lobster! 

Recreation enthusiasts love the Ogunquit area because our front yard is an ocean and our backyard is the "Vacationland" known as Maine. You can try deep-sea fishing departing from Perkins Cove, cast a rod into the river, learn about trapping lobster with a licensed captain, take a bicycle ride with a certified cycling coach or play a round of golf at some of New England's top-rated courses. Sailing, sea kayaking, surfing and whale watching are popular activities as well as hiking nearby Mount Agamenticus or the Wells Reserve at Laudhold Farm. 

Whether it is a romantic retreat, a family escape to the beach or an outdoor adventure, Ogunquit is your premier year 'round destination. Come and discover the charm of Ogunquit.
