The York Region Chamber of Commerce is the official business association of Kittery, Eliot, York, South Berwick and Cape Neddick. We are an independent, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote the growth and general prosperity of Southern Maine. We are dedicated to fostering the business, cultural and economic vitality of Southern Maine and the York Region.
We do this by providing programs, events and resources that allow member businesses to connect with one another. We also coordinate publications that enable member businesses to advertise their products and services to effectively reach their target audience and interact with prospective customers. Additionally, the community events that we facilitate create an environment where small businesses can grow and prosper. Finally, our office serves as a resource for businesses, residents and visitors.
When most travelers visualize the York Region, they think first of our family-friendly sandy beaches or the famous Nubble Lighthouse, which is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. It’s true that those are two of the main draws to our area, but they are certainly not all that we have to offer. Our towns are some of the oldest in Maine, settled in the early 1600s. A significant number of historic buildings remain, creating warm neighborhoods and lovely scenic drives. Mt. Agamenticus is a shared resource area with trails for hikers, bicyclists and birdwatchers and its summit boasts fantastic views of the region.
We are a four-season destination, with annual community events that take place throughout the year. There are many lodging options available if you’d like to stay, in addition to plenty of shopping, from the outlets in Kittery to the antique shops along Route One. Those who love seafood will not be disappointed; there are a variety of restaurants to provide delicious foods to satisfy everyone’s preferences.
