Wells holds a variety of things to do for the whole family. Any review of the area has to begin with...the beach! Wells is known for it's clean and safe beaches. There is plenty of room to lay out, catch the sun and watch the beautiful Atlantic ebb and churn.

There are several playgrounds for the younger travelers as well as an arcade right on mile road down by the beach for the teens in your family. Get to the circle at the end of Mile Road early in the day to take advantage of the free parking. Spots fill up quick! There is a pay parking lot just up the block near the Ox Cart Motel.

There are a few campgrounds in the area if your family enjoys bringing home with them.

Well also has some great dining and has restaurants to suit many tastes. The area by virtue of it's location has many seafood restaurants that are fantastic. There's simple family dining such as Mike's Clam shack (which can have a long wait time in season). One place that needs to be mentioned is Jakes on Route 1 near the Wells visitors center. It is a great place to grab a quick bite and sit outside on the porch.

Nearby are the towns of Ogunquit and York Beach. Both offer many family type activities and should definitely be given consideration during your Wells stay. No trip should go without a trip to the Freeport area for great shopping and restaurants!

Hope your stay in Wells is all you expect and take time to enjoy the ocean....
