This is a beautiful drive, fabulous homes, great ocean, rocks and waves. And everyone stops at the president Bush compound to take photos. I think the secret service guys hate this. Keep driving and get lost it's all good.

It's a beautiful drive, not very long (well, maybe longer but we turned around at the Bush compound). A must-do!

If you're visiting Kennebunkport, be sure to drive Ocean Avenue and view the Bush's compound, the amazing coastal houses and ocean views along the way. This is definitely a scenic drive that's worth the trip!

Bottom Line: Nice drive through Kennebunkport. Details: We drove through here during our visit to York. The drive was very nice but not very long. We didn't bother to stop in town as it didn't look all that appealing compared to places like Perkin's Cove. If the weather is accommodating, this is a very pleasant drive.

Nice place to walk around shop and grab a bite to eat. It can get very congested at times. Several Great ice cream places!

We stayed in town and biked out to ocean avenue, stopping to walk on the beach and gawk at the Bush compound. Beautiful beach and grand homes. Stopped also at St. Ann's church. it was closed but we enjoyed walking the grounds.
