This property is ideally located right on Long Sands Beach, a beautiful, sandy 2.5 mile long beach. Take the trolley to downtown York Beach. There, you will find the famous Goldenrod Candy Shop. You can stand on the sidewalk and watch how this historic restaurant makes homemade salt water taffy. Take the kids inside to visit an old fashion penny candy counter, or sit at the soda fountain and have a sundae made with the Goldenrod's homemade ice cream!
There are great souvenir shops, choose Mexican, Chinese, wood grilled pizza or fresh seafood from one of the many restaurants located within a quick walk. Many nights a week, stroll over to the gazebo to hear local bands playing in the evening. Of course, there is York Wild Kingdom which features a very nice zoo and rides for the kids. Wrist bands are good for the day so go for the zoo in the afternoon, go back to the apartment for dinner and head back for rides in the evening. Take a morning or afternoon to head to the Nubble Light House. This is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. Don't forget, when you are on the Nubble, visit Brown's Ice Cream, a local favorite!
We are so lucky in York. We have 4 beautiful public beaches to choose from, and if that is not enough, take a quick ride to Ogunquit and enjoy that public beach as well. While you are in Ogunquit, enjoy the shopping and dining there as well. Or make a day of it and jump on board a whale watching boat or deep sea fishing vessel in Perkins Cove.
There is so much to do in our area we just can't cover it. Of course, a Maine vacation is all about relaxing so leave yourself plenty of time to sit and enjoy the ocean. The views from the deck are spectacular! Maine really is the way life should be.
