Scenic Spots

The York's
York is a small picturesque coastal community.
To say you're from York isn't enough.
People around here want to know which one!

York's 66 square mile area is divided up into four distinct communities:
York Village
York Beach
York Harbor
Cape Neddick
Cape Neddick Fish Shack
Picturesque York Village is sometimes referred to as "Old York". There you may visit many buildings maintained by the Old York Historical Society, including the Old Goal (Jail), where people love to have their picture taken in the stocks on the front lawn. Old Goal (jail)
The York Beaches. Not just one! There's Long Sands Beach, Short Sands Beach, The Harbor Beach, and Cape Neddick Beach. All have there own personalities. Long Sands Beach, 1.5 sandy miles, gentle sloping, great for kids. Short Sands Beach, short but lots to do with a playground for the kiddies, souvenirs shops, places to eat. The Harbor Beach is as quaint as the Harbor itself, a favorite of many locals. Cape Neddick Beach, A small tidal beach with limited space, but unlimited appeal. Long Sands Beach
Make sure you make a visit York Harbor. If you show up at the right time you might even see a tuna arrive at the dock before it is shipped off to market. Lobster boats are everywhere. Leaving hourly, in season, from town dock #2 are Lobster Fishing Tours. Other fishing charter boats are also available for day and half day trips. If you're looking for a really fresh lobster caught by local fisherman, try visiting the lobster pound at the end of Varrel Lane located at Donnell's Dock. (Tell Mary that Shirl sent you!) Take a walk across the "Wiggley Bridge" stroll along the Fishermen's Walk. Enjoy the scenery. It's beautiful! Wiggley Bridge

Fox's Lobster House

Cape Neddick is the home of one of the most photographed and painted lighthouses in the country, Cape Neddick Light or better known as "Nubble Light" for the "nub" of land it sits on. Located in Sohier Park, it attracts visitors from around the world. While your there, have a bite to eat at Fox's Lobster House at the picnic tables or inside their dining room. (You can't beat the view of the Atlantic and Nubble form there!) Then pick up that memory item at the Sohier Park Gift shop.
