York-Beach is part of a 66-acre region on the southern coast of Maine, that includes York Village (or Old York,) York Harbor, York Beach and Cape Neddick. The beaches, undoubtedly, are the main attraction here, and "The Yorks" has been named by Money Magazine as one of the top ten places to vacation in the U.S. There are miles of sandy beaches, with the most popular being Long Sands and Short Sands, and York Beach with its carousel and arcades. Beach activities, such as swimming, boating, sea kayaking, sunbathing and beachcombing are all available for visitors. From U.S. Highway 1A, take Nubble Road to the end of Cape Neddick for a spectacular view of the Nubble Lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1879 and sits on a tiny island just offshore. Historic York Village has several 18th and 19th century buildings, all clustered along York Street and Lindsay Road, and all available for public tours. The "Old York Gaol" built in 1720, was once the prison for the Province of Maine, and inside are dungeons, cells and jailer's quarters. "The Yorks" is typical of small New England coastal towns, with nooks and crannies to be explored, and wonderful restaurants featuring fresh Maine lobster and crab cakes.

York Beach Weather & Climate

The southwestern tip of Maine, just across the New Hampshire state line, enjoys a four-season climate without the frigid temperatures of the northeastern part of the state. While the weather can change quickly in Maine (from sunny to stormy,) the seasons are pretty predictable. Fall is a favorite time of the year for many, with mild sunny days and crisp cool nights. With its proximity to the ocean, this part of Maine enjoys mild summers with cool ocean breezes and temperatures that rarely go over 80 degrees. Rain is possible anytime of the year. Visitors should come prepared for anything - temperatures in Maine have been known to swing 20 degrees in less than an hour. At times, the wind along the coast picks up, making it seem even cooler.
