Perkins Cove has many restaurants and shops but the best part of visiting is the view of docked boats and the drawbridge that opens often to allow the sailboats to pass through.

Great shops and restaurants! Lovely views! Lots of great photo opportunities for sure. Quaint and special. Don’t drive in if you don’t need to! Parking will be about $25.

Something for everyone. Lots of cute shops and places to eat and for looking out on the water. Easy walking to shops. We took the trolley to get there to avoid the headache of traffic and trying to find parking. Very fun.

Pretty cove , long and narrow with a bridge that opens for the tall masts. Lots of restaurants and shops and the beginning of marginal way, a coastal winding pathway with spectacular views. Ogunquit museum is right there. This is a must in Ogunquit.
