One of the best attraction at Ogunquit is Marginal Way. Especially during the summer where you can get up early and experience the mile walk on the border of the ocean. Wildlife, boats and more!

Although visiting the Marginal Way in the middle of winter may be challenging, the recent mild weather allowed for reasonable conditions on the pathway. There were icy stretches but everyone we encountered along the way appeared to enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. Just beautiful.

Great views, great excercise. There is access to the water, but very rocky. After October you can walk your dog on the pathways.

Loved walking Marginal Way. A bit crowded but all in all a nice way to spend a morning. A short distance and mostly level ground.

We have been coming here for years and always have a wonderful time! Great views, dog friendly and each end has great shops and restaurants. Great for a solo walk, family walk or couples as well!
