It was a beautiful drive. We drove down to see the Bush Compound. It was really neat to see. Found out after our return that the Bush grand daughter had gotten married the day before.

Well worth going on the Ocean Avenue to see the beautiful ocean, Walker's Point, and St. Ann's Episcopal Church. The views are absolutely gorgeous, and the waves on a windy day are unbelievable. Well worth the short drive. Would definitely recommend.

This is a beautiful drive! We really were fortunate to have a sunny (but cool) day to enjoy it. There are some fabulous homes to see along the water, too.

I walked Ocean Avenue from Pearl Street to Walkers Point one brisk morning in November. The sites were amazing. Nearing the Atlantic, the street is a gauntlet of New England architecture, marinas with nautical themed buildings and water sloshing as it breaks against the rocks...More

A drive down Ocean Avenue shows you why the wealthy built lavish homes there. To the east is the North Atlantic Ocean and its pound surf. Inland it is beautiful homes and a quaint town that just screams New England.

Take the drive. Stop often and take photos. Spectacular views. The day we were there the traffic was very light and that helped with our leisurely drive.

It’s takes about three hours from RI. Take 95 all the way up, or you can avoid Boston and take 495. Ocean Ave is in Kennebunkport area and you drive right pass President Bush’s compound. Really nice drive or park and walk a... More
