Lobsters & Lighthouses in York Maine

The coast of Maine is deliciously cozy place to retreat for a winter getaway, especially if you love good food or romance. The famous beaches -- York's Harbor Beach, Long Sands Beach, Short Sands Beach, Cape Neddick Beach or Kittery's Fort Foster Beach -- contain a smattering of walkers who appreciate the beauty of sand, surf, accented by snow. Button up and join them to watch a glorious winter sunset or to see the stars light up and night.

Warm up after your walk with hearty Maine fare, like lobster in a creamy bisque or surrounded by steamed clams, corn on the cob and roasted red potatoes in the classic lobster dinner. Maine’s signature shellfish is served at elegant fine dining establishments or waterfront restaurants or in boisterous family eateries.

Plan to visit the famous Maine lighthouses. The Nubble (Cape Neddick) Light in York is on an island close to shore and people celebrate it with gusto from neighboring Sohier Park, especially at Christmastime.

Lodging accommodates the needs and budgets of all types of visitors. Popular lodgings are beach and ocean resorts, where the threshold of the ocean is at your toes, along with very nice services and amenities. This is the ultimate place for romantic getaways; enjoy the outdoors and then cuddle up inside, or take a break from indoor living to shop at the iconic Kittery Trading Post or enjoy dinner and live music at the delightful Jonathan’s Restaurant.
