It is a slow drive in your vehicle. It would be best to do it on a bicycle. Lots of places to eat and shop.

This drive was so beautiful. The houses were gorgeous and the ocean was awesome. There were places to pull over and take pictures.

Wonderful walk from downtown down near the Bush compound. Excellent views of ocean, beach, Saint Ann's Church, and Bush Compound. We kept walking back up to Turbat's Creek Rd, but to do over again (not much to see once you leave the ocean) I would turn around and walk back up Ocean Ave to see from a different angle.

Ocean Avenue is a lovely place to walk and experience the beauty of Kennebunkport. There are wonderful shops and great places to eat (lobster chowder at Hurricaine is out of this world).

This drive is awe inspiring. Beautiful scenery and gorgeous homes, Walker Point is along the drive and the views in that area are stunning. Take time to experience this while in the area!

Being Greek I was delighted to walk by the ocean. The waters were just as blue as the Aegean sea. The beaches were not as lovely as those on those in Greece. I loved seeing the beautiful houses and the gardens. It was a great experience.

While visiting in Kennebunkport we took a drive down Ocean Avenue. Even though it was an overcast day with occasional rain it was a fantastic drive Beautiful coastal landscapes. Well worth the drive if you in the area. The downtown area is a quaint coastal town.
