Kennebunkport Maine (the port) is nestled between the Kennebunk River and the ocean. It is part of the seaside communities known as the Kennebunks, which also include Arundel and Cape Porpoise Maine. Historical buildings along the river are home to charming gift shops, galleries, and fine restaurants. The picturesque Goose Rocks Beach is enjoyed by walkers of all ages. Visitors can experience much history in the old-world fishing village of Cape Porpoise, where they can watch lobstermen unload their catch, or take a cruise from the pier on a working lobster boat. Lobster pounds, fish markets, and restaurants are famous for their fabulous fresh seafood. As well as a summertime vacation place, Kennebunkport is an ideal getaway during any season. In Fall, it is bursting with brilliant colors. In Winter, if skiing is not your bag, you can cuddle up by the fireplace, and watch a gentle snowfall from one of the many charming inns or bed and breakfasts.
