This quaint town along Maine's coast is notable for its history, beaches, and outdoor activities. The 18th-century former jailhouse remains, as do historic homes and the Nubble Lighthouse -- one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. York experiences a surge of visitors during the summertime, but it rarely reaches a point of being overwhelming like so many other beach destinations. Tourists flock to the coast, lined by sandy and rocky beaches, and enjoy activities such as swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, and even whale-watching. Those looking for the area's most secluded beaches may consider heading to York's Cape Neddick, a quiet little beach with views of the lighthouse.
Where to Stay: Stage Neck Inn has a scenic oceanfront location, right next to York Harbor Beach. The 58-room hotel offers some outstanding features, such as an outdoor freshwater pool with ocean views, an indoor atrium pool, and a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs.
