Top 5 Things To Do In Scarborough Maine

My all time favorite is Higgins Beach. I grew up there and worked at the Higgins Beach Inn as a teenager. At Higgins you can visit the rocks and catch snails and crabs and see the occasional starfish. Walk to the other end of the beach and you have the river and the wreck of the Howard W. Middleton. The wreck occurred in 1897 when the coal ship ran ashore in heavy fog.
