Ogunquit's Marginal Way
. . . the enchantment of crashing waves and seaside Maine cliffs
Enjoy this picturesque path as you walk the cliffs of Marginal Way. Contemplate the ocean along one of the many memorial benches. Mother Nature is at her best - Spring brings sea roses, summer the scents of the beach, and fall the crashing waves upon the rocks. Hidden in between rocky Maine coast and the sea are tide pools teeming with starfish, sea urchins, and creatures of the ocean deep. A gift from the late Josiah Chase and restored by Ogunquit volunteers after the 1991 October 'no-name' storm - the inspiration for the movie "The Perfect Storm" - Marginal Way mesmerizes and enchants.
The north entrance to the beloved Maine shore line of Marginal Way is just a five minute walk from the Meadowmere Resort. Learn more about the history and beauty at the Marginal Way Preservation Fund website. Come enjoy the beauty of Marginal Way -any time of the year!
Ogunquit's Perkins Cove
. . . the energy of a lobstering harbor and scenic fishing port
Home to one of the only wooden footbridges in the United States, Perkins Cove is a lively scenic harbor in Ogunquit. From classic ocean views to art galleries to Maine lobster, Perkins Cove is full of hustle and bustle in fishing and summer seasons.
Perkins Cove began as a small fishing community. Each day, fishermen and lobstermen would head out for the daily catch. One would see sailors and cove men fixing lobster traps, fishing gear, lines and nets along the Cove's water front. Overtime, those making a living off the sea came to share Perkins Cove with local artists and shop owners - Everyone was attracted by the quaint beauty of this seaside harbor. Today, a vacation to Ogunquit isn't complete without a trip to Perkins Cove to enjoy the restaurants, shopping and more.
Or head to sea with whale-watching trips, lobstering excursions, and deep sea fishing tours that leave from the docks of Perkins Cove. And during quieter times, the Cove is an Ogunquit favorite for ocean dining and peaceful strolls on the Maine coastline. This perfect seaside place is just a trolley trip away from the luxury of The Meadowmere Resort.
