On this York Beach, Maine post, we feature a most relaxing scene of chairs overlooking the ocean at Short Sands Beach.
This almost Norman-Rockwell-Meets-The-Coast-like scene creates a relaxing vacation-like moment that gives the visitor the beach, the ocean, the rocky coast and a feeling of peace, quiet and reflection. It’s nice that experiencing this moment resides, ironically, in the heart of downtown York Beach where the bustle of tourist season — with all its shops, restaurants and attractions — can yield a busy look. Just a few steps away from the downtown and Short Sands Beach (when it’s crowded), however, can take one away to another place. A quiet one.
Call it the best of both worlds.
