I have fond memories of growing up visiting Ogunquit, Maine. It’s a town with a population of barely 1,000 people yet in the summer it comes alive with visitors hungry to soak up the salty air and coastal breeze that Maine provides in spades during the warmer months of June through September.
As a kid, we would drive south about 1 hour from where I grew up to Ogunquit’s sandy shores (unusual in a state marked by rocky coastline) and then stroll the main drag of town in search of cute trinkets and quintessentially Maine goods. Visiting this month for the first time in at least a decade with Visit Maine and Travel Mindset was an entirely new scenario, but it brought back the memories of why I love this seaside Maine town so much. It’s a simple, feel-good place that offers plenty of activities to enjoy for everyone, but the most important thing to be enjoyed is the beauty. I hope some of these images will inspire you to add Ogunquit to your next Maine itinerary next time you head to the Northeast.
