Photographer Kindra Clineff captured summer in Ogunquit, Maine — the #1 beach town in New England — from both the air and ground in this series of photographs for our 2012 cover story on The Best Beach Towns in New England. The aerial photographs she shot from a helicopter gave her a real appreciation for the beauty of this vast stretch of beach, but she also discovered that this great walking town was actually much easier to get around on foot. We can see why…

Please enjoy some of our favorite shots of summer in Ogunquit, Maine from her travels around the beautiful coastal town. They’re the next best thing to being there!
