This rocky coastline is a perfect picture taking background for nature lovers. It conjures up images of vessels from the past passing by. Many pull outs to stop along the curves in the road to take in the unsurpassed strength of the Atlantic ocean. Also, a look toward the magnificent houses facing the ocean. Most enjoyable for an afternoon drive... More

What wonderful exercise for the body and the soul to stroll Kennebunkport's OceN Avenue! There is a sidewalk along the ocean from which you can see gorgeous summer mansions, beautiful flowers, and the rocky Maine coast.

Lovely road right along the water. On one side are gorgeous New England homes and on the other side the ocean.

How can one not be completely captured by the sea? It is endlessly awe-inspiring. I can't believe that I led most of my life in the Midwest. You could not tear me away from the ocean.

We drove through Kennebunkport on a Saturday afternoon...packed. It was a great town, but hard to move. We headed out on Ocean Ave and the crowds thinned out a lot. The drive was absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous houses, beautiful coast/oceans views, and just all around great, peaceful scenery.

After staying at the Nonantum Resort we decided to take a walk/drive along Ocean Ave. This is one of the most beautiful roads we traveled. With cool breezes off the ocean, beautiful mansions, rocky landscapes this is what Maine is all about. Well worth the drive.

If you are wanting to stop by the old Episcapal church at 367 Ocean Dr. then you might want to rethink it. We could not find parking for it, and when we turned into the drive it turned out to be a private drieway. owner was highly upset. Anyway, the drive itself was absolutely beautiful. Only place to pull over... More
