The Gateway to Maine.

For every reason...in every season! Money Magazine rates the The Yorks region one of the top ten destinations in North America for vacations! Spend a day or spend a week. Rent a cottage on the beach, or relax at a luxurious oceanside spa. Climb Mt Agamenticus, or shop at America’s number one factory outlet stores in Kittery. Visit the famous Nubble Lighthouse, officially the Cape Neddick Light Station, one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Stay at a cozy B&B, then take a bounce on the Wiggly Bridge, a suspended foot bridge over the York River. Discover Ft. McClary, a revolutionary war fort, which the legendary John Paul Jones sailed past on his way to the British Isles aboard his sailing ship, the Ranger. Visit the Kittery Historical Naval Museum to see the importance of our 200 year old shipyard in the development of the region.

History comes alive throughout the region. At the Old York Historical Society, the museum’s buildings are spread throughout the village of York, one of southern Maine’s most beautiful main streets. In South Berwick, visit the Old Counting House or the Hamilton House on the banks of the Salmon Falls River.

This area was home to the some of the first art colonies , and the first colorized travel postcards were painted here! Artists and artisans still abound with many galleries open to the public year round. And we have the best seafood and fine dining available! Long sandy beaches, warm cozy fires, kayaking and biking---there’s something for everyone, and that’s why Family Fun magazine has rated us the best family vacation destination for the past three years! From festivals to sandcastles, the Greater York Region welcomes you --in every season---for every reason! The Gateway to Maine Visitor's Center Nubble Light.
