We visited in the winter and every store in Perkins cove was closed except for Jackie’s too restaurant. It looked like it would be perfectly charming in the summer or at least fall or spring!

My family has had a house in Ogunquit for years. We come to Perkins Cove often to eat and wander through the galleries and shops. It is quaint - like so many New England coastal villages. There is a beautiful wooden bridge in the cove.

This is one of the most picturesque spots on the east coast. Shops and restaurants at you feet. And for a real treat walk The Marginal Way.

Nice seafood restaurants with views of the ocean and many local shops all within walking distance. Try taking the Marignal Way walking trail from Ogunquit Beach to avoid paying for parking in Perkins Cove for more great views of the ocean.

Beautiful scenery with lots of nice shops, places to eat and different types of boats that you can get a tour of the coast on. Also the starting point for Marginal Way, a wonderful walk along the ocean front.

I THINK that some would be closed by then but we have not been there that late in the year for a long time. We usually go in September after the schools open and most, if not all, are still open then.
