Ogunquit or Portland?

Spending 4 nights in Maine, late June, with my husband. Both in early 50's.

Have never been to Maine and was wondering how these two cities compare.

Would like to be able to walk, spend time at a beach, whale watch etc.....

Don't like too quiet an atmosphere but not too busy either.

There is a wonderful Whale Watch tour out of Kennebunkport called First Chance Whale Watch. Kennebunkport is a short drive from Ogunquit and you'll also enjoy a stroll through the town either before or after your sail. You should try to book it at least a day or 2 in advance.

Ogunquit has more of a "vacation" feel, and beautiful beach there, vs a city. As mentioned, you can still take a drive up to visit Portland, during your stay,, have a great time,, enjoy some lobsta!! :)
