Picture ocean waves crashing onto a rocky beach, lighthouses towering above the coastline, and charming New England villages sitting along the shore, and you have the southern Maine Seacoast area. These coastal communities are full of character, but don't let their secluded appearance fool you: these cities and towns are packed full of amenities.
For the serious or recreational shopper, there's a huge outlet mall in Kittery with retailers such as Coach, Nike, Gap, Cole Haan, Nautica, Bass, and OshKosh. For the history buffs, nearby Portsmouth, NH features all kinds of interesting museums, including several restored homes that date back to the 1700s. Living on the Maine Seacoast, endless adventures await! If you're considering buying a home in one of these seacoast communities, call or text us at 603-436-1221.
Fall In Love With The Maine Seacoast
Follow Route 1 up the Maine Coastline and you'll pass by the Outlets at Kittery, Kittery Premium Outlets, York River, and countless antique stores and seafood restaurants. A more scenic route along Route 1A winds along the coastline, and it's a wonderful drive past quaint New England houses and communities. From York, you're only 20 minutes from Portsmouth, NH and 45 minutes from Portland, ME.
Activities & Sightseeing
Maine's seacoast offers plenty of fun things to do year-round. Hike to the top of Mount Agamenticus (fondly known as "Big A") in York, where you can see Boston to the south and the White Mountain range to the north. Go for a bite to eat or a fun shopping excursion in Downtown Kittery, where you'll also find plenty of beautiful architecture. Of course, you can't forget to photograph Maine's lighthouses, like the Nubble Light in York.
Towns & Communities
Ranging from small fishing villages to established port cities, Maine's seacoast communities offer their own distinct lifestyles. York is a popular summer resort destination because of its 18-hole golf courses and sandy beaches, while Kittery has the amenities of a big city and easy access to Portsmouth, NH.
Its Local History
Kittery calls itself the "oldest incorporated town in Maine" and can trace its history back centuries. A tour through this area is always a great idea. Be sure to stop by local landmarks like the Kittery Public Library (nicknamed "Rice Public Library" after a well-known local family), Frisbee's Market, and, of course, Downtown Kittery.
