This ocean-drenched Maine town, with its collection of arcades, amusement rides, and snow-cone shops, carries a bit of Coney Island vibe, which may not be for everyone. But for folks who want to saunter over to a seven-mile stretch of beach from their  budget-conscious lodging, it’s hard to top. Don’t miss:A pepperoni-studded slice at Roma Pizza.

Who’d have thought that Little Comp-ton, best known for its historic village common and centuries-old cemetery, would have a gem of a beach just down the road? Backed by a marsh and salt pond, crescent-shaped Goosewing Beach is managed by The Nature Conservancy as a shorebird preserve and is just as popular with walkers as sunbathers. (Parking is nearby at South Shore Beach.) Don’t miss: Quahog chowder, jonnycakes, and lobster rolls at The Commons Lunch after your day of breathing in the salty air.
