Visit Ogunquit, Maine. It’s Worth It!

By  | 

Visiting Ogunquit, Maine is no longer a remote location but rather one of the most popular summer tourist spots in the USA. Ogunquit to Kennebunkport, Maine is where the 1% of the 1% go for a vacation and build their summer homes. Regardless of the roots, the location is breathtaking and worth the effort to see and experience. For the rest of us – we go there to see the beautiful location but the homes of the 1% of the 1%. Its interesting to me to see how the super ro=ich spend their summer vacation.

One sunny morning, I took the trolly from York to Short Beach and took the Blue Bus to Perkins Cove. At Perkins Cove, I walked Marginal Way – a walk along the coastline that has great views of people, homes, and the shoreline. It takes about 20 minutes in each direction. On this morning, I went early, which I preferred, because the number of people on the walkway wasn’t too crowded.

    Beautiful pictures, quaint town, beach, black outcropping rocks. Reminds me a little of Mackinaw Island, MI. Maine is a nice place to visit via Kate!
