Perfect combination of quality shops from t-shirts to luxury items. A short walk from the Captain Lord Mansion.

Ocean Avenue takes you through the quaintly commercial area of Kennebunkport, but you can also follow it for a beautiful walk out of town. As in its name, you can see the ocean from many spots, watch the tide rise and fall and get a lovely panorama from the bridge near the town center.

It's a nice walk with beautiful vistas and several places to stop and sit and gaze at the ocean. You'll have a great view of Walker Island and if you're lucky the Bush family will be in residence.

Beautiful to walk the avenue and just see the sites. If you can, walk. If you drive you will miss a lot.

Both the sea side and the houses are delights, and the Cape Arundel Inn offers an excellent spot for an afternoon drink.

Did not have much time but wanted to enjoy seeing the beautiful coastline, together with the fine homes and small resort towns. Next time, would allow enough time for a decent walk

Beautiful drive along coastal Maine. The natural beauty coupled w/ exquisite houses makes for an entertaining drive and even more enjoyable walk if you have the time. The salt air and cool weather are refreshing and hypnotic. This is a perfect example of what makes Kennebunkport so enjoyable - an attraction that helps slow down your pace and appreciate natural...
