“Perkins Cove”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a lovely quaint little cove, perfect setting and cute little shops and teashops. It's a working fishing port and we watched lobsters being unloaded from the boats.

“Great window shopping”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Good shopping, lots of classy touristy things to see and buy. Shops are all close together, jewellry, paintings, sculptures, and unusual Tshirts and tops. Right at the waters edge so scenery is great too.

“Quaint little harbor in Ogunquit”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

What a spot to watch boats and surf. Also the start of Marginal Way trail along the rocky cliffs. Shops and restaurants abound.

“neat little harbor on the south coast of Maine”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Well groomed lobster boats neatly lined up in a tiny harbor. Touristy shopping and eating areas, but the end of Marginal way gives a good reason to sit down for a drink and watch the waves, and people.
