The Maine Beaches
Even after the sun sets along Maine’s spectacular 30-mile stretch of sandy southern coastline, there is much to light up the evening in the Maine Beaches region. Intimate local venues, including historic theaters and opera houses in Ogunquit, Arundel, Berwick and Biddeford, feature world-class performers. Fine art museums, galleries, shops and restaurants bring visitors to the village centers and charming main streets. And free outdoor concerts attract lively audiences to Old Orchard Beach and other oceanfront communities. Unique family festivals, such as the La Kermesse Franco-American Festival in Biddeford, celebrate the region’s heritage with parades, live music, arts and crafts, food and more. And historic architecture in Kittery, York, South Berwick, Kennebunkport, Saco and Biddeford offer a fascinating break from the sand and the sea.
