A day trip to idyllic Kennebunkport ..What to do


If you happened to read my blog post last week about Portland, yes on my Portland trip we took a day tour to Kennebunkport. About 40 minutes from Portland in southern Maine, Kennebunkport is an idyllic coastal town. A picturesque, breezy town with beautiful waterfronts, cascading narrow roads, gorgeous houses. Visiting Kennbungkport can make anyone happy, whether you want to rent a bike or sail in the water, eat lobster, walk in the beautiful square with melting ice cream, or wind shopping in the colorful stores and boutiques. 

What to do

Experience the spirit of Dock Square - The lifeline and spirit of Kennebunkport is the Dock square with plenty of eating choices, lobster roll to natural ice cream with ample of a great eatery. Explore one-of-a-kind shopping and art galleries. Don't forget to click a photo with the Kennebunkport sign on the Lanigan Bridge. Touristy but worth clicking. 

Cape Porpoise - If Dock square is the spirit of Kennebunkport then Cape Porpoise is the Solace of Kennebunkport. A quint escape with gorgeous waterfront, the best view of the Goat Island lighthouse with few eating spots cape Porpoise is a fishing village with a wide spread of views, floating boathouses, narrow roads, and whatnot.

Walker's point - Walker's point is truly depicted as a quintessential coastal Maine Charm. You can take a drive and there are stopping points where you can park your car or bike and take a glimpse of deep blue water with rugged coast along with the gorgeous homes as well as former president George Bush's vacation home. Don't miss out and stop at The St. Ann's church lookout point to watch the sailboats.

Seashore Trolley Museum - Riding through history back on time with the guide in the vintage trolley is fun, learning, and relaxing. Featuring and displaying trolleys, buses of a bygone era in the huge ground with a walkable area. You can also visit the gift shop with lots of collectibles and books, etc. One of the fine places to go with family and kids.
