Vacationland: York, Maine

Nubble Lighthouse

If you happen to be in “Downeast” Maine for a few days’ R&R, York has plenty of attractions to make for a good visit. Home of Cape Neddick Lighthouse, better known as “Nubble Light”, York has beautiful coastlines and attractive beaches. There’s even an arcade right at the beach. At The Goldenrod you can watch the saltwater taffy being made fresh right before your eyes – and their lunches (and frappes!) are delicious.

For the fiber enthusiasts, York has a very attractive and welcoming yarn shop (the Yarn Sellar) which happens to be on the Maine Yarn Cruise (a summer yarn crawl around the state) and stocks Maine yarns.

And last but certainly not least – the York Wild Kingdom offers fun for all ages, whether that be on the amusement park rides or visiting the wide variety of animals at the zoo and butterflies in their Butterfly Kingdom.

Happy vacation planning!
