York Travel Guide

York is located at the bottom corner of Maine, and is known as an amazing summer getaway spot. The town is particularly diverse, with plenty of things to do, museums to visit, and beaches to relax on. If you're visiting with friends and family and want to soak up the sun on soft sands, this is the place for you.

That said, if you prefer a more active holiday, York has plenty of historical landmarks and places to visit. York was first settled in the early 1600s and so is packed with interesting buildings and culture. Visit York for the perfect combination of a beach getaway and a new adventure!

Things to Do in York

From beaches and shops to fine dining and historic landmarks, York has plenty of things to see and do. York is a coastal town, so walking along the bay is one of the best things to do, simply soaking in rocky cliffs, the clear blue waters, and the fresh air. Visit Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in Maine, for scenic views and to get a real maritime feel. Check in advance that the lighthouse is accessible during your visit, as constant tides make the area slippery.

One of the most popular beaches is the Long Sands Beach due to its size. There's plenty of place for children to play safely, as well as for adults to bask in the sunshine. Long Sands is only a short walk away from the Cliff Path Walk and the Short Sands Beach too. Short Sands Beach is a particularly great spot for sea glass hunting -- meaning it's a hit with families.

Elsewhere, the Wiggly Bridge is a small suspension bridge crossing the water and great fun to walk over -- it's also a prime photo spot. For the history buffs in your group, the Museum of Old York is a must-see, where nine restored buildings from centuries ago are open for visitors to explore.

If you're looking to get active, Mount Agamenticus is excellent for hiking and biking, complete with lush greenery and an impressive range of wildlife. For more animals, head over to the York Wild Kingdom Zoo and see the white Bengal tiger!
