York Village, York Harbor, York Beach, Cape Neddick | Composed of what were once four smaller communities, the towns of Cape Neddick, York Harbor, York Village and York Beach formed under one government to create this beautiful and diverse town. It is famous for its long sandy beaches, and safe, family-friendly beach-town atmosphere. As each year passes, the area becomes more of a destination for weddings, family reunions, or just a place to get away.

Kittery | Our gateway town, the oldest incorporated town in Maine, guards the mouth of the Piscataqua River and is the halfway mark on Interstate 95 between Boston MA and Portland ME. Along with the beautiful homes and gardens, there are remnants of the fishing, shipbuilding, and other marine-related industries that were once the center of Kittery’s economy. Today downtown Kittery, sometimes known as Kittery Foreside, has become a gathering place for artists, specialty shops, and fine dining. The Kittery Outlets, located along the Route 1 corridor, provide a variety of shopping experiences.

Eliot | Once a part of Kittery known as the Upper Parish, the town separated from Kittery in 1810. The town meanders along the shores of the Piscataqua River opposite the cities of Portsmouth and Dover, NH.

South Berwick | Home of the oldest power mill in America, this community has had a diverse economy that included textile and shoe manufacturing, farming, timber and fishing. The quaint downtown has a variety of year round fine dining and delightful shops. Outdoor concerts on the town hall lawn are a common summer occurrence.
