Drove on Ocean Ave during winter, but even then it is a must see. Beautiful homes! I always do wonder what the people who own these homes do for a living and why is it that I'm not doing it??

We had so much more fun in Kennebunkport then we thought we would. We met people from all over the country everyone interested in enjoying the beautiful location and dining at the terrific restaurants. My girlfriend and I had so much fun shopping and we really enjoyed our long walk out to the Bush compound.

A wonderful scenic ride along Ocean Ave. Many people stop on the roadside to take photos of the Atlantic Ocean. Maine's rugged coast is very picturesque, and is used on calendars of the US. Former President George Bush Sr., and his family have a summer compound here.

After leaving dock square, you drive along the Kennebunk River and view the boats and restaurants along the way. The Colony Hotel is a grand hotel on your left as you reach the ocean. Great for cocktails on the veranda in the summer. On the right across from the Colony is a small parking lot and a small beach. No... More

Walk or drive but the ocean and shoreline are always awesome. Rude changes and wave motion always entertain and impress.
