Sandy dunes, salt flats, the Atlantic Ocean, and East Coast wildlife are what make Kittery Point a beautiful destination. The area is also famous for delicious seafood. Maine lobster and clams (or quahogs) are the local specialities and you can eat an abundance of food for an affordable price. The coast stretches 50 miles, but the beach is not the only appeal of Kittery. Old historical buildings make the town unique, and it is also home to the Rachel Carson national wildlife refuge. The combination of being a small fishing town and a town with historical importance makes Kittery Point a true New England experience.
