Places in Maine
Ogunquit & Wells
Known to the Abenaki tribe as the 'beautiful place by the sea,' Ogunquit (population 1300) is justly famous for its 3-mile sandy beach. Wide stretches of pounding surf front the Atlantic, while warm back-cove waters make an idyllic setting for a swim. In summer, the beach draws hordes of visitors from near and far, increasing the town's population exponentially.
A longtime destination of moneyed East Coasters, the towns of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport make up the Kennebunks. Kennebunk is a modest working-class town, with few tourist attractions aside from its marvelous white sand beaches. Just across the river, proudly waspy Kennebunkport crawls with tourists year-round.
