    Two New England beaches have landed on TripAdvisor's World's Best Beaches 2017 Travelers' Choice Awards.

    Ogunquit Beach in Maine and Race Point on Cape Cod were among the top 25 beaches picked by the travel website company. It's the second year both beaches have been selected.

    Ogunquit was called "idyllic" by one TripAdvisor reviewer.

    "Stroll or run on this beach when the tide is low, you will have plenty of space. In the off season go anytime. In summer the water is great," said Sandy, one reviewer.

    The site says the best time to go to Race Point is June through August, although some TripAdvisor reviewers say they love going in the off-season.

    "Even in the winter months, Race Beach has spectacular sunsets that will warm your heart," wrote Cecilia, another reviewer. "The sunset will absolutely infiltrate your senses with joy and wonderment!"
