There’s far more to do in Kennebunkport than one could possibly accomplish in a single visit during the summer. Once in Kennebunkport’s magical seaside village, you’ll discover why visitors return year after year to enjoy the beautiful seasons of New England’s coast.
Things to do in Kennebunkport
Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, or the “Kennebunks” as they’re known, offer arts, architecture, antiques, shopping, boating and much more. Both have historic districts steeped in local lore and offer tours of the homes of sea captains and shipbuilders. Shoppers in search of unique gifts and treasures will find them in the shops and galleries of Dock Square, the Lower Village and downtown Kennebunk.
Visit a historic Maine lighthouse, see the area on bike, foot, by car or by trolley. Or explore the seas aboard a lobster boat, on a whale watch, a charter boat, a kayak or a canoe. You will not want to miss a drive around Ocean Avenue with its Blow Holes, sweeping ocean vistas and view of President George Bush’s Summer Home – Walker’s Point.
Then there is Cape Porpoise, a classic Maine fishing village with a stunning view of Goat Island Lighthouse. A couple of miles further is the fabulous Goose Rocks Beach, truly one of the country’s most extraordinary beaches.
Spring brings still more special promotions and packages. Fall is the season for spectacular foliage and quiet walks along the beach. Celebrate a real old-fashioned holiday during Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude and rekindle memories of Christmas festivities from long ago.
Whatever the season, whatever the reason, you’ll find the Kennebunks have it all. Award-winning restaurants, gracious accommodations, remarkable boutique shopping and activities for all ages.
