Did not have much time but wanted to enjoy seeing the beautiful coastline, together with the fine homes and small resort towns. Next time, would allow enough time for a decent walk

Beautiful drive along coastal Maine. The natural beauty coupled w/ exquisite houses makes for an entertaining drive and even more enjoyable walk if you have the time.

Fabulous views along Ocean Avenue-just beautiful. Walk all the way to the Bush compound-takes about 35 minutes to walk there.

We loved our walk to Walkers point and beyond. Great to do first thing in the morning when there are not many cars.

Beautiful views, nice shops and docks along the way. Easy access, sometimes drivers are too fast, but most stop for pedestrians.

Love to walk along Ocean Avenue and gaze at the ocean and the beautiful homes on the way. I try to do this every time we visit the area.

You must walk, bike or drive Ocean Avenue to see the lovely homes, magnificent views and if interested, see Walker's Point, the summer home (compound) of George and Barbara Bush. Go as far as Cape Porpoise to experience a working port with fishing boats and a view of the Lighthouse on Goat Island.
