Water Parks in Southern Maine

When you’re visiting southern Maine in the summertime, there’s no better place to spend hot, sunny afternoons than the beach. There are many gorgeous beaches along the coast of southern Maine perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, or sunbathing on the sand.

Even though the beaches in this area are so picturesque, you might find that your kids eventually get bored with the sand and surf. If you’re looking for a new way to cool off in York this summer, take a trip to one of the nearby water parks to beat the heat and find fun for the whole family.

Water Country is constantly opening new attractions, so you’ll always find something fresh and exciting even if you visit every year. Additionally, there are lots of dining options so you can grab a bite of your favorite cuisine during your day at the water park. Check out this video tour of the park!

Funtown Splashtown USA is more than just a water park. It offers regular amusement park attractions like roller coasters and kiddie rides, too!
