Travel: Ogunquit, Maine

the captivating coastline

Last week I asked a friend who is a wealth of knowledge for day-trip ideas, and he suggested visiting Ogunquit, Maine.  Located about 75 miles north of Boston, Ogunquit is exactly what I picture when I think of a quintessential New England beach community.  Picturesque and charming, it’s filled with inns, B&Bs, restaurants, galleries and adorable shops.

Since we went on a winter weekday, many of the restaurants and shops were closed.  According to the locals, though, Ogunquit becomes quite the place to be in the summer.  In addition to the quaint downtown area, Ogunquit is home to some beautiful coastline, museums and a playhouse that’s open from May through November.  I can’t wait to return to this beautiful haven!
