If you want to taste of true down east Maine (the wealthy kind) you will want to drive or walk Ocean Ave. There are places to pull in and take pictures or you can just drive the avenue and dream what it would be like to have a millions of dollars cottage by the sea. Kennebunkport is so much more... More

Pick a nice day, and walk from Dock Square all the way out to Walker Point, the Bush family home. If you're power walking, this hike has everything -- inclines, fabulous water views, and almost always a fine breeze. But you take your time as well. In fact, you can pack a light lunch and stop along the way. You'll... More

This was a very pleasant place to drive and enjoy the scenery. We viewed the large and impressive Bush family holiday residence from the roadside. In town, we had lunch, visited some shops and viewed some expensive houses from the road.

Open air. Just a good place to amble--no hurry. Don't expect to see the Bushes, which can be thought of as a blessing.

We very much enjoyed walking ocean drive and strolling in and out of all the specialty shops. We found a pottery shop tucked away in an upstairs loft that was interesting and our b&b hosted recommended a small shop that sold sea glass jewelry that I really like. The owners of all the shops were friendly and helpful, even recommending... More

Drove ocean avenue and followed the coast to portland maine going thru all the inlets we could to enjoy the beauty of the sea that us flat landers don't see everyday must travel miles for our eyes to see the wonder of the ocean.
