The publication recently released a list of the top vacation destinations for 2024 and included Ogunquit.

“Pent-up demand and a heightened appeal of wanderlust are creating an influx of both domestic and international travel this year,” wrote Real Simple. “Travelers are ready to take the leap to pursue long weekend getaways, cruises, bucket-list trips abroad and historical vacations that boast enriching and educational experiences.”

Here’s what the publication wrote about Ogunquit:

If you don’t want to venture out of North America, this New England town in Maine offers a peaceful charm. Home to miles of scenic sandy beaches, sprawling rocky cliffs, and tree-lined streets, Ogunquit is a vacation spot on the southern coast of Maine. If you’re looking for a place to stay, The Dunes on the Waterfront is set to re-open with a complete renovation for the 2024 summer season. The property features 23 cozy accommodations set on 12 acres of oceanfront lawns, including vintage New England whitewashed cottages spaced apart for ultimate privacy, all complete with outdoor sitting areas. And if you’d like to turn the vacation into a road trip, after visiting Ogunquit, venture south for stops in Boston or Newport, RI.

The publication checked with travel pros to compile the list, which also included destinations such as London, Tokyo, and the Greek Islands.
