Popular Short Sands Beach is a pleasant 1/2 mile walk on a tree-lined side street. Shops, restaurants (including great local seafood). You'll find York's Wild Kingdom, The Goldenrod (world famous for salt water taffy made the same way for over 50 years), Funarama with games including skee ball, a wonderful beach side playground and the Gazebo for summer concerts.

Short drives open a world of sightseeing, shopping, hiking, boating, etc. Portland is 30 minutes away with ferries to the Maine islands; driving up or down the coast leads you to outlet shopping at Freeport, one hour away, or Kittery, 15 minutes away; a burst of driving to the heart of the New Hampshire White Mountains for a days junket is one and one-half hours away.
