Indoor Fun for the Whole Family in Maine

Wednesday, January 29th, 2020

When the temperatures are a bit on the bone-rattling side of things, or the skies are sending down some heavy-duty rain or snow, fear not: As a guest of ours here in Ogunquit, you’ve got just as many awesome indoor family activities at your ready disposal as you do outdoor ones.

Here’s a look at just a few of the destinations you and the rest of the gang might consider visiting when the weather isn’t exactly conducive to a day at the beach.

Local Museums

There are multiple great museums within easy reach of your Ogunquit.com accommodations, including a number right here in town. Some of them, such as the Ogunquit Heritage Museum and the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, close during the winter, but others remain open year-round, including the Brick Store Museum (117 Main St., Kennebunk), with its fine exhibits on history, art, and other subjects.

Up in Portland, meanwhile—which is an easy drive from the Beautiful Place by the Sea—you’ve got multiple great museums, not least the Children’s Museum + Family Theatre of Maine (142 Free St., Portland). Located in the city’s Arts District, this institution focuses on STEM education, art, early childhood learning, and multicultural/community engagement. Its many interactive exhibits include the Playscape, the kid-size community of Our Town, the Fire Truck, the Raising Readers Book Nook, the Space Shuttle, and Discovery Woods.

Game Zones

From the full arcade and crowd-pleasing pizza to the Giant Slide and the Bounce House, Joker’s Family Fun & Games (100 Larrabee Road, Westbrook) is the perfect place to soak up that insatiable kid energy, which can, needless to say, be a challenge to deal when outdoor activities aren’t really an option.

Then there’s Maine Indoor Karting (23 Washington Ave #9782, Scarborough), a place for young and old to crank up the speed and maybe engage in a little friendly family competition.

Shopping

Besides all the shops and boutiques here in Ogunquit, you’ve got a great choice for retail therapy at the Kittery Trading Post (301 U.S. Route 1, Kittery), which has loads of outdoor apparel and equipment. Even on a day when you can’t be outside having fun, you can gear up for your next adventure!

Indoor Fun in & Around Ogunquit

Our Ogunquit.com accommodations themselves are cozy and decked-out places to wait out some mediocre weather. Join us with the whole crew this winter at the Gorges Grant Hotel, the Juniper Hill Inn, or the Milestone—you’ll enjoy the best savings by booking directly with us—and take advantage of our close proximity to some outstanding indoor family hotspots!

 

Best Accommodations for Christmas By the Sea

Wednesday, November 20th, 2019

It’s not too early to start planning your getaway to Ogunquit, Maine for the town’s Christmas by the Sea: a fantastic community celebration marking its impressive 33rd edition in 2019. You won’t find better accommodations for the festivities than the Gorges Grant Hotel, the Milestone or the Juniper Hill Inn—book your Ogunquit.com getaway today for this yuletide spectacular!

Ogunquit’s Christmas By the Sea

The specific itinerary for the 2019 Christmas by the Sea event—which takes place December 13th through the 15th—hasn’t been revealed yet, but you can be sure of a fantastic time absolutely drenched in merry holiday spirit along the Gulf of Maine.

Christmas by the Sea will feature a slew of holiday crafts, games, hayrides, and markets that make for one of Maine’s truly classic family-friendly seasonal festivals.

There’ll also be a well-attended Christmas Parade wending its way from Perkins Cove to Main Beach, where a jampacked evening of fun will then unfold, with the Ogunquit Ocean Rescue Polar Plunge, a bonfire, and some spectacular oceanfront fireworks.

Both Veterans Park and Rotary Park will host tree-lighting ceremonies (accompanied by caroling, warm beverages, and no small quantity of good cheer) during Christmas by the Sea, while holiday concerts will go down at the Ogunquit Baptist Church and some holiday flicks at the Dunaway Center.

What else? Well, how about wine tastings, late-night parties, and some high-profile appearances by the big man himself, Santa Claus, whose cameos are likely to delight not only the younger crowd but all the kids-at-heart in attendance.

Additional Nearby Holiday Happenings

Ogunquit’s Christmas by the Sea overlaps, conveniently, with two other holiday festivals along the local coast. From December 5 through the 15th, Kennebunkport will be throwing its 38th annual Christmas Prelude, which’ll include such favorite traditions as the lighting of the Lobster Trap Tree in Cape Porpoise Square, the Hat Parade, and the grand arrival of Santa (he’s going to be busy in Southern Maine next month) by—what else—lobster boat.

 

On December 15th—the Sunday marking the last day of both Christmas by the Sea and Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude—our neighboring town of Wells will host its 34th annual Christmas Parade, easily combined with Ogunquit festivities.
