Peace and quiet. Very clean area with many very good and rustic restaurants. The walkway along the shore rocks is called the Marginal Way. It is a nice stroll along the coast with many areas for taking pictures.

Boyfriend and I hit the road from NYC and found our way into this super cute village with lobster everywhere! Lines for lobster were everywhere but we pulled up to Footbridge Lobster. Great take out place. Avoided all the lines and had a cute, quick, messy dinner on a bench overlooking the beach. So romantic!

My husband and I enjoyed walking to Perkins Cove along Marginal Way and when we got there we found inexpensive lobster and tasty clam chowder. There's wonderful shopping and friendly people everywhere.

Parking is expensive so leave your car at the hotel and walk on down to the village. Lots of shops that weren't overly pricey and nice restaurants. Sit back and watch the fishy boats come in or maybe take the sunset sailing cruise. We did and it was well worth the $30.

Love the shops and restaurant choices. Stay on shore drive and everything is in walking distance. We stayed at Hartwell House and walked to everything.

We walked to Perkins Cove every morning during our stay in Ogunquit, to get coffee and sit on the coffee shop's patio and watch the ocean for an hour before starting the rest of our day. There are some nice gift shops and restaurants there, and you can enjoy watching boats come and go. A nice little spot.

At the end of the Marginal Walk is Perkins Cove. It's always fun to browse in the galleries and chochkie shops. you have a choice of places to eat, snack, or just have a cup of coffee. The footbridge and the ocean all around make this place a perfect spot for a photograph.

Perkins cove is so beautiful, it was very busy when we were the full of sightseers. There's some great little shops and restaurants to get food. The view is fantastic.
