8 A.M. Start with breakfast at The Omelette Factory on Main Street. It’s been part of the Ogunquit community for nearly four decades. In addition to a whopping 43 omelette options, there are plenty of other breakfast favorites, too, from pancakes to french toast.

10 A.M. It’s beach time! There are two great spots to soak in the sun in Ogunquit, including the quieter Footbridge Beach and the more bustling Ogunquit Beach. The former, of course, has a lovely footbridge where couples have gotten engaged and married over the years.

NOON: Stroll around Perkins Cove, a fishing village that’s filled with shops and art galleries.

2 P.M. Take an afternoon cruise around Maine waters on the Silverlining, a 42-foot Sparkman & Stephens sloop built in 1939. The 2 p.m. cruise lasts two hours and can accommodate six people.

5 P.M. Have dinner at the Ogunquit Lobster Pound. You can try the hot boiled Maine lobster, lobster pie baked in a ramekin and many other seafood (and landlubber) options. We know you love a North Fork lobster roll, but when in Maine …

8 P.M. Check out the Ogunquit Playhouse for some top-tier musical theater. “The Nutty Professor,” a world premiere musical by Marvin Hamlisch and Rupert Holmes, runs through Aug. 6. The world premiere of “Mr. Holland’s Opus,” written and directed by BD Wong, runs Aug. 12-Sept. 17.

Staying over? The Milestone hotel is located a quarter-mile from Footbridge Beach and has plenty of amenities, including a pool.
