The Marginal Way voted one of the Ten Best Places to Visit in Maine

The Marginal Way, a mile-long footpath hugging the Ogunquit coast, is one of New England’s most beloved coastal walks. The paved path edges the Atlantic, passing rocky coves, quiet beaches and stellar sea views. The path’s 39 strategically placed benches offer plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the views.
