Kennebunkport, Maine Travel Guide

Walker's Point in Kennebunkport, Maine, the northern home of President George H.W. Bush

The Town of Kennebunkport is located in York County, Maine, about 85 miles northeast of Boston, and 29 miles south of Portland. It lies on Maine Highway 9, east of I-95 and U.S. Highway 1.

The town center, the area in and around Dock Square, is located along the Kennebunk River, about one mile from the mouth of the river on the Atlantic Ocean.

Historically a shipbuilding and fishing village, for over a century the town has become a popular summer colony and seaside tourist destination.

Cape Porpoise, while retaining its identity as a fishing harbor, has a very small village area with several restaurants, a church, grocery store, coffee shop, small library, and art gallery.

Points of interest include Ocean Avenue, Gooch's Beach, Middle Beach, the Seashore Trolley Museum, the Brick Store Museum, the Eastern Trail, the Wedding Cake House, Blowing Cave, Saint Ann's Church, whale watching, sailing excursions, art galleries and eclectic shops.

 

Special events are held thru the year, such as the May Day Parade, the Kennebunkport Festival in early June, the Launch Maine Maritime Festival, fall Harvest Fest, Christmas Prelude, and more.

We have visited Kennebunkport and have enjoyed its many attractions, lodging options and restaurants.

Spend a day, or more, and enjoy and explore Kennebunkport!
