Ogunquit Named Best Beach Town in New England!


Ogunquit was named the best beach town in New England, with Kennebunkport, York and Old Orchard Beach also making the top twenty. Yankee Magazine’s July/August 2012 issue names the top twenty beach towns in New England based on ratings of a 0-10 scale in fourteen categories: picturesque quality, thriving town center, traffic, parking, clam shacks/ice cream stands, lodging, shopping, rainy day activities, accessibility, public access to beaches, natural life, solitude, kid-friendly and water temperature. Ogunquit had the highest score-115 points.
Which beachfront communities offer the quintessential summer joys of unfurling a blanket on the sand, listening to the waves and jumping them-and then, sun-kissed and eager for sundown, strolling the streets and poking into shops? Which place gives you the wonderful experience of a blissful summer day stretching slowly into the next and the next? Of course, we here always knew it was Ogunquit!
