    This is one of the standout experiences from our holiday. The museum is spread over a large area and we saw trolley cars and busses through the ages, including a Glasgow tram. We visited the restoration workshop and saw several trams at various stages of build. We had a ride in a trolley car on the museum’s track. We were there on a fund raising day and owners were giving rides on a pump car and speeders, rail vehicles used to transport railway workers. We had a ride on both. A great day out!

    This is a nice scenic drive for anytime of the year. More off-season you go, the more leisurely you can be. Beautiful views abound with activities along the way, such as beaches an shopping. There are opportunities to stop an relax on benches while taking in the ocean views.

    Lovely view. Lovely neighborhood. Kind of cool that the Bush's still come to stay in summer. Seeing secret service and all that. Another quick stop that's just, interesting.

    Beautiful coastline. Walking all along the road was great, and what a surprise to come upon the seaside stone church. A perfect walk between the shops in town and the Bush estate.

    Beautiful walk along the coast on white sand beach. We went close to sunset and there wasn’t very many people. Take a jacket with you.

    This is a nice beach, not huge like Long Sands, but plenty of rock-free sand. Nice views, and a playground. Parking would be tough in the summer.

    We had to view the compound from afar, but the views surrounding are scenic, and quite pretty. The drive past it in both directions is nice. It's easier to take your time during the off-season when there's a lot less traffic.

    It was in the mid-50s on January 2 when we viewed the Goat Island Lighthouse and outlying structures from the Cape Porpoise pier. So, the tiny parking lot was still filled to capacity, even though the three seasonal restaurants were closed. The dock personnel were still busy, though.

    My wife and I have been travelling to Kennebunkport, ME for 26 years now, typically annually and discovered Mast Cove on our first trip there. Jean Briggs makes the world of purchasing art so very comfortable that anyone who feels they do not know how to buy art just need spend sometime with her. Each and every time we go there, she suggests she put on some coffee or maybe a glass of wine and the experience begins. From our first purchase, an Andrew Stevevich print of The Dance and a watercolor of a finch, we have such fond memories of the time with Jean as well as the art we have purchased. For anyone who enjoys art, this is a mandatory visit while in Kennebunkport.
