York, nestled on the coast of southern Maine, has multiple villages — and personalities. There’s quaint York Village, with historic Colonial buildings and museums; pretty York Harbor, with its picturesque cove; honky-tonk York Beach, with its string of souvenir and T-shirt shops, and Cape Neddick, home to the famous Nubble Lighthouse. In summer, every section bustles, as visitors clog Route 1A, wait for tables and parking slots, and stake claim to a towel-size patch of sand on the beach. We prefer it now, when the crowds are gone, and York shows yet another personality: its laid-back, chill side.
