The Natick Indians certainly knew what they were talking about when they used the name "Ogunquit", which in their language means "a beautiful place by the sea". With a long history as a fishing village, Ogunquit's main business now is tourism, attracting many thousands of visitors yearly.

Travel between any of these major attractions is easy, quick and comfortable in Ogunquit's trolleys, which are driven by friendly, knowledgeable locals who are happy to point you in whatever direction you desire.
