Of course, we stopped and took some pictures of the Bush Family summer estate. You can't get very close to it but you can at least see it from afar. Would like to see the... More

Great to walk, great to car, great to pedal bike, and great to run. Sit on a bench winter and summer and enjoy the clean air and ocean. No parking.

Lovely winding seaside drive through Kennebunkport. This is an especially nice time of year to visit as the summer crowds are not in attendance. Easy to find scenic area parking.

This was SUCH a lovely drive! We came upon this little town on our way to Portland--I really wish we'd found it sooner. Take the time to make the drive along Ocean Avenue and stop in the town of Kennebunkport.

We only got to drive it as we were on our way to Portland but if I were staying in Kennebunkport I'd run this every single morning. Breathtakingly beautiful with wonderful houses and amazing beach views.

Driving from downtown Kennebunkport, ME we went along the coast and enjoyed the scenic view. The rocky coast was so nice that we did it twice. We past the anchor across from the Bush home and enjoyed the other magnificent Inns and homes along the way.

Favourite drive around Kennebunk with some spectacular views. A must for anyone visiting the area for the first time or even if you live here. It makes you feel at peace, especially on a glorious day with a cool breeze coming off the sea

Driving along Ocean Avenue is breathtaking, with the snowstorm, and the waves crashing in, spectacular!

Lots to see and do ... stop by the beaches and bring home some Maine rocks! Ocean Avenue has so many small charming places to stop and explore!
