“Stunning, World-Class Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Driving along Ocean Avenue made me seriously want to buy a home in Kennebunkport! Ocean Avenue is the romantic drive in the area and takes you by world-class views of the rocky beach and Atlantic Ocean and multi-million dollar ocean mansions. To savor the experience, pull your car over by the benches along Ocean Avenue and just savor the moment. My girlfriend and I spent over an hour just gathering rocks by the ocean. Also, we drove up and down the side streets off of Ocean Ave e.g. Atlantic Ave. These are gorgeous dream homes!

“Worth the short drive!! Beautiful spots to watch the sunset.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Sometimes there is too much traffic. We like to drive Ocean Ave in the fall. Or we park and walk. Beautiful place to see Kennebunk Beach from as well as the Colony Hotel.

“Spouting Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Along Ocean Ave, there is a place, about 3/10 of a mile past St. Anns where you can sit and watch the tide come in. There is a sea cave where the ocean spouts through the rock. It is a beautiful place. Park at St. Anns. If you are facing the ocean, walk to your left down the street. Just past Spouting Rock Lane (on your left) you will see 3 benches on your right. Take a bench and enjoy the action.
