This is just an overlook on the side of a 2 lane road, but it's just up the street from the main action in the town. It's a must do if you enjoy stunning views. We were so happy we stopped. And just beyond is a gorgeous Episcopal church that also has stunning views. It's a great little stop off... More

This is a beautiful drive with great views of the ocean. Stop along the way and enjoy. The houses are beautiful too -- which one did you pick to buy?

Ocean Avenue hugs the rocky shoreline and offers beautiful views of the ocean and the expensive homes that overlook it. It's not far from the shopping district of Kennebunkport and it doesn't take too long to do the drive. As you cruise this scenic drive you can't help but wish you owned property here - it is such a majestic... More

Grab breakfast to go and walk or bike along Ocean Ave to Parson's Walk - sit on a bench and enjoy the incredible view and breeze. Or stop in at St. Ann's Episcopal church.

We drove along Ocean Avenue during our vacation. It's all coast on one side (no parking) and nice residential homes on the other. There's no immediate parking, though there is some in some of the side streets, but if you want a sense of coastal beauty, this is not a bad place to drive.

This is a nice drive with multiple places you can pull off and park to take in the views. There were benches facing the water at a few of the areas where you could pull off. Others were enjoying picnics and drinks on the benches or on a blanket on the ground. It would be a good idea to pack... More

My wife and I were only in town for a short time and were not able to visit many places. But we were so glad to take this drive . It was very relaxing, and we especially liked being able to pull over and take in the wonderful views of the water and coastline.

Make sure you pull over to get out and see the views!! Some spots have benches to sit and relax. It's so very enjoyable! In the distance is the Bush's home. It's so very beautiful.

Maine is so lovely to drive through and the views are outstanding. This was well worth the trip! We spent some time viewing President Bush's compound. The flowers along the roadside just add to the beauty.
