10 Things to Do in Ogunquit That You Shouldn't Miss

July 30, 2017 Myesha Cogley

The motto of the resort town of Ogunquit, Maine, is "beautiful place by the sea," and with three and a half miles of sheltered white sand beaches, the residents are definitely not lying. Take a walk along the Marginal Way, a path that winds along rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean, or explore the town center on the local public transit - an old fashioned trolley. With art galleries, fresh seafood, and the summer stock Ogunquit Playhouse, the town of Ogunquit is a favorite vacation destination.

Marginal Way

A scenic 1.5 mile oceanside cliffwalk.

Reviewed By dialam - Ct

The Marginal way is a great place to walk. The view is fantastic. Also you can see most of the places to stay on the water front. See the privet homes as well (It must be nice for some people). There are places to sit along the Way. Or walk onto the rocks for a closer look at the water. There are some walk ways down to the beach. Just make sure you bring your walking shoes. A must walk and see.

We visited while a school trip of 3 bus loads of middle schoolers. The course was great, no hole in ones, but tee times were long. On an off day, we probably would have a better round.

Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse

Considered to be the "most photographed" lighthouse, this 41-foot conical tower sits on the summit of Cape Neddick Bubble, a small offshore rocky islet, looking proudly over the Atlantic.

Reviewed By angeleyes27 - Marlton, New Jersey

Ok. I admit that I love lighthouses and this is one of my favorites. Built in 1879, it is on a little island off the coast and is an American icon. The Voyager spacecraft carries a photo of this lighthouse as one of Earth's most prominent icons along with the Great Wall. It is picturesque and I painted it when I was very young and came here. Located in the middle of a housing neighborhood, there is a little restaurant off the parking lot. To me, it is classic Maine.

Cape Neddick Golf Course

Reviewed By EnjoyingNC - Ft. Lauderdale

We played golf here 4 consecutive days and had a wonderful time. The course was in excellent condition and each hole presented unique challenges. It was also delightful to see management's respect for nature and the environment. The course is a beautiful nature sanctuary as well as a test for all levels of golfers.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and courteous too.

Ogunquit Playhouse

Reviewed By Linda M - seacoast, nh

Where do they find this level of performer? They are broadway quality talent. Every show we've seen was broadway worthy. We hadn't been to this playhouse for many years. I remembered it as typical summer stock - mostly silly farces. This is SO not true today. Our first experience was Pricilla, Queen of the desert where they had the original costumes from the original show! Next was the winter show performed at the portsmouth music hall, beauty and the beast. There are no words to describe the level of quality of that show, the costumes as staging were gorgeous. The talent as good as broadway. This year we saw Ragtime, elvis show, and last night saw From here to eternity. All were performed by high quality talent, clever staging aided with projections. In From Here to Eternity, The bombing scene was just incredible. You thought the room shook and the slow motion movement of the actors was stunning. We have tickets to this year's winter show White Christmas. The only problem is the very narrow rows. You can't cross your legs or shift in your seat, and the slant of the room is not enough to see past someone tall in front of you. This hadn't stopped us from going three times this year.

Wells Beach

Reviewed By BusterBusBus - Orlando, Florida

We went on the off season to walk the beach and it was just so peaceful. I loved this beach. There were some surfers there and we found a few seashells. If you are in the area go here and take a stroll and enjoy the sand and waves.

Short Sands Beach

A family-oriented beach that includes a playground.

Reviewed By wildcatsu - Charlotte, North Carolina

This little beach is so lovely at sunrise and the colors are gorgeous at sunset too. It is very small however and can get super crowded. The sand isn’t super comfortable either, it’s a Maine beach, so bring a thick blanket. There is paid meter parking and a restroom however as well as an awesome playground for the kids. Several shops and restaurants within walking distance, as well as the arcade. I found a live starfish here too... though no other shells at all.

We spent several mornings and evenings enjoying the beach. It is extremely clean and well taken care of. It has beautiful views and the tide creates all kinds of different places to explore as a couple or family with any age children.
