5 Tips for Enjoying York Maine

Mount Agamenticus

Despite its small size at just 692 feet, the mountain offers an engaging trail system. There are easy pathways to the summit within a half-hour hike, as well as more difficult trails for avid hikers and mountain bikers. 

Sohier Park

For a spectacular setting, take your book, walking shoes, or picnic basket to Sohier Park, home to Nubble Lighthouse in Cape Neddick (officially named Cape Neddick Light). This park and tower are among the most photographed landmarks in the United States. 

Long Sands Beach 

Like it sounds, Long Sands Beach is a 1.5-mile stretch of white sand along Route 1A with some tide pools and rocky spots. It’s handicap accessible with access ramps near the bathhouse. 

Museums of Old York

The Museums of Old York offer real-life insight into York Maine’s rich and storied past as one of the oldest Colonial communities in the country. The Old York Historical Society manages a complex of several historic buildings. 

The Goldenrod

Do you know how saltwater taffy is made? As you walk through York Beach village, stop at The Goldenrod candy shop to watch it being made. Having been in business since 1896, the shop has crafted its sweet taffy to perfection.
