Ogunquit – Maine’s Gay Mecca

Just 66 miles north of Boston on the coast of Maine, Oqunquit is a cute resort that has been welcoming gay and lesbian tourists for many years. With miles of sandy beaches, plenty of accommodation choices, world class restaurants and clubs, the town has plenty to offer the gay community, and is a popular destination for  LGBT travelers coming from Canada.

Two Village Square

Pink Choice lists many of the gay and lesbian guesthouses, inns and resorts in Ogunquit. Based on reviews that have been written by guests, Two Village Square has been a Pink Choice Award winner for the last two years. It recently sold,  so we will look forward to receiving some reviews under its new ownership. The Admiral’s Inn Resort is also ‘Highly Recommended’ by Pink Choice members.

When it comes to eating, Ogunquit offers no end of great choices. Favorites include Front Porch Restaurant, Angelina’s, Caffe Prego, and the Wild Blueberry Cafe and Bistro. A full list of dining options can be found on the gay Ogunquit website.

For night time entertainment,  the Ogunquit Playhouse offers professional productions through the summer months. The town is also home to the Booth Theater, located in the Betty Doon Motel. For clubbing, the Main Street Video Bar is the center for gay nightlife in Ogunquit. Other options are the Front Porch Piano Bar and the Oxygen Lounge.
