Kayaking on the river and in the ocean is a favorite pastime. There are cruises available on historic schooners where you may see whales and a lot of beautiful scenery. Visitors enjoy golf and deep-sea fishing and can take a ride on a lobster boat. The downtown is two blocks long and pedestrian-friendly for window shopping and people watching. Other favorite shopping areas where you will find unique items and antiques are Lower Village and Dock Square. This part of Maine is rich in golf courses, spas and beautiful beaches.
Something for Every Season
There is something for everyone in Kennebunk. Winter may be cold, but it is great for a romantic getaway. The fall foliage is legendary and the Christmas season is magical. You can visit Cape Porpoise and see the Goat Island lighthouse established in the 1800s that is still working. The pier is the lobster center of the area and there are several ways you can enjoy this tasty treat. Dine on the pier in casual style or go more up-scale at Pier 77.
Other activities include an in-town trolley tour and a visit to the Kennebunkport Brewery in Lower Village, Kennebunk. The Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge area has seven miles of marsh walkways that are a birdwatcher’s paradise.
Fun Local Events
Kennebunk and the surrounding region have several annual events, the most notable is The Kennebunkport Festival in early summer. You can enjoy local food and wine while strolling through the many art galleries. A unique attraction is the Museum in the Streets. It is a walking tour to local historical sites and there are 25 historical panels along the way to answer your questions and inform you about the historical places. You can get maps at many shops around town. Two favorite places are The Wedding-Cake House and Summer Street where there are many 19th-century mansions.
Owning Kennebunk timeshares is a good decision because at the time of a popular festival or the summer and winter activities, the accommodation rates will be higher. However, timeshare owners need not be concerned because they have already paid for their accommodation. With a timeshare, you get all the comforts of home along with all the facilities of a first-class resort.
