York Maine Town Guide.
York Beach is a classic summer beach town complete with all of the coastal New England essentials. We’re talking an amusement park, arcade, beach-y shops, and plenty of salt water taffy to go around!While York Beach still reflects a 1900’s beach town persona, new shops and restaurants have recently joined the mix to bring a new upscale edge to the town. Now we can enjoy healthy juices and smoothies on the go, while sporting beachy-chic apparel and dining at upscale restaurants. All of these amenities are located just steps from Short Sands Beach! If you’re looking for a more laid-back beach scene, head a few minutes south to Long Sands Beach. It’s the perfect spot for a leisurely walk or a surf sesh. Nestled just south of Cape Neddick, a stone’s throw from Ogunquit, Maine and 15 minutes north of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, York offers the best of both worlds—relaxing beach atmosphere with a hint of modern day amenities!
Take in an afternoon paddleboard session, enjoy a beverage along the calm waters of York Harbor, or hit the links at a nearby golf course! Enjoy a walk or yoga on the beach, take a hike (or drive) up Mount Agamenticus, learn about York’s rich New England history, and enjoy fine dining 12 months of the year!
