Destination guide

York is coastal Maine at its best

York sits by the Atlantic Ocean near the southern tip of Maine, and has long been a magnet for visitors to New England. As it's one of the country's oldest cities a culture fix is easy to come by, although gorgeous beaches, great shopping and a dining scene that gets even the most diehard foodies excited mean the whole family can look forward to a getaway to remember. Set yourself up for a great time by enjoying all the comforts of home in York vacation rentals. You'll find many just steps from the city's prettiest stretches of sand.

Things to do

Old meets new in York

A peek into the past is rarely more intriguing than the one served up at Museums of Old York, a centuries-old settlement in the heart of York Village that counts the colonial Jefferds Tavern and Georgian-style Emerson-Wilcox House among its highlights. Seeking a more modern flavor of York? Find it at York Beach, especially over the summer months, when the beachfront is all but taken over by live bands and dancing. For families, there's serious fun to be had riding the Ferris wheel and bumper cars at York's Wild Kingdom zoo and amusement park.


Waterfront delights in York

York's unique villages provide an idyllic setting for a little downtime, not least at York Harbor, where dockside restaurants serve freshly steamed lobster in view of the crescent-shaped cove. At Short Sands Beach, younger travelers can ride the carousel, score big in the arcade and tuck into homemade salt water taffy, although those traveling without kids might prefer to head to the quieter Long Sands Beach, nearby. If time on the water is on the agenda, kayaking is a popular pursuit, particularly along the 13-mile York River, though sea kayaking at sunset is by no means 2nd best.


Seasonal weather averages in York

If you're hoping to enjoy some warm-weather activities on your vacation, July, August, June and September are the hottest months to visit, when temperatures average 66°F.
