Can't be missed if you are in Ogunquit. Quaint harbor with boats, a foot drawbridge (!) many shops and places to eat and the start of the Marginal Way walk. Pay to park and enjoy the scene.

Great place to go on a nice day in Maine. There are plenty of shops and food choices. Don't forget to walk Marginal Way while you are there.

Beautiful shops and eateries nestled along the coast, something for just about everyone. We bought a few treasures and had a memorable outdoor lunch.

Nice walk from Sparhawk along Marginal Way - about 1 mile on an asphalt walkway along the rocky ocean. Walkway impressive, well kept and so interesting. Amuse when. You go to Ogunquit.

Have a lobster roll at Footbridge lobster or a rum punch at Barnacle Billy's. Stay away from Perkins Cove on weekends and, when you do go, take the Marginal Way – and do it by foot. Leave your car at the hotel. Trust me.

If you stay at the Riverside Motel it is very easy to visit Perkins Cove. Otherwise parking is at a premium and you must pay.
