Overlooking the marina in York Harbor
Like other resort towns along Maine's coast, York Harbor became a popular getaway after the Civil War. Many of the original shingle-style buildings and homes remain today and, aside from York Beach, are one of the city's strongest draws. The 18th-century former jailhouse remains, as do historic homes and the Nubble Lighthouse -- one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country.
York Harbor experiences a surge of visitors during the summertime. Tourists flock to the coast, lined by sandy and rocky beaches, and enjoy activities like swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, and even whale watching. There are also nature preserves in the area for hiking, as well as nearby golf courses.
Dockside Quarters overlooks a marina in York Harbor. It is a bit removed from town, but most sites and attractions are only a short drive away.
