Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

When most of us think of Maine, we think of lobster. York doesn't disappoint when it comes to serving lobster and other culinary wonders from the sea. The Dockside Restaurant offers traditional New England fare, and if you want a ribeye steak, that's available too. You'll enjoy a panoramic view of the harbor while you dine. Both Stage Neck Inn and Stone’s Throw offer a boutique hotel setting and an excellent restaurant serving breakfast buffets, small plates, and the freshest seafood. The restaurants are open to the public, but only hotel guests may make reservations.
If you're in the mood for some boutique shopping, plenty of choices exist in York Village. Sisters Judy Bean and Susie Bean Lemire run Daisy Jane's women's clothing boutique. They carry brands and styles you won't find at a typical department store. The area also provides plenty of gift shops. The Clown is one of the favorites of locals and tourists.
York Harbor Marine offers boats made by Mercury, Yamaha, Evinrude, and Honda if you're shopping for a new or used boat. They also carry certification as a full-service center. Even if you're not in the market for a boat, you might enjoy taking a look.

Things to Do

History enthusiasts may want to visit the Nubble Lighthouse in Cape Neddick. The lighthouse's construction began in 1874 and was eventually put to use in 1879. The Old York Historical Society is also worth a visit. Housed in an iconic Maine barn, the society's mission involves building community through education and preservation.
Surfers who want to spend the day at the beach should head to Long Sands Beach. If you intend to sunbathe and take an occasional dip, Short Sands Beach will more than suffice.
Perhaps you can't wait to break in your new hiking shoes, Mount Agamenticus offers a challenge with a stunning view as a reward.
Those who live in York or visit in the middle of October won't want to miss Harvestfest. This annual celebration offers activities for the entire family as well as plenty of food and music.
