Fun Family Activities in York Beach Maine

It is never too early to start planning for vacation and with spring just a couple of months away, it is a perfect time. April 15th, our doors will be open for a 2022 season. If you’re sensing spring in the air, you’re not alone. Here at the Lighthouse inn, we can sense it too! To help you plan your vacation, we have compiled a list of fun things to do on your next visit to York Beach, Maine.


Beach Day on Long Sand Beach


Long Sands is York’s biggest beach, is a mile and half long classic Maine beach that is perfect for long walk, day or evening. You can see both the Nubble lighthouse and Boon Island from Long Sands, as well as New Hampshire’s Isles of Shoals.

Because it faces the open Atlantic with no appreciable harbor, this is where you’ll find good waves for boogie boarding or surfing! For those beach lovers, you can set up tent as early as 5am to maximize your family time on the beach.


Short Sand Beach


Short Sand beach is perfect for families with small children. When you get tired of playing in the water, enjoy a basketball game with your family or watch the littles enjoy the rest day on swings and sand boxes. Here, you can do both and everything.


York’s Wild Kingdom

A walking distance to the Lighthouse Inn & Carriage House, the amusement park and zoo has something for every member of the family, from exotic and local wildlife to rides and games that will keep your family busy. Enjoy mini-golf and a Haunted House to thrill family members of all ages. Spend a day here and create a memorable vacation.

Bowl a few strings or play both vintage and new arcade games and try to beat your high score each year.
