Come to the Kennebunks—Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel—and spend your days lounging on beautiful beaches and nights dining in our award-winning restaurants. Or visit one of our historical treasures, like White Columns, the Brick Store Museum or the Seashore Trolley Museum, then grab some fried clams or the best lobster roll you’ve ever tasted at one of our casual eateries. Shop in our unique, independently-owned stores, surf, take a boat tour, stand-up paddle board or try your hand at deep-sea fishing, and then relax in a range of accommodations, from 5-star hotels and elegant B&Bs to homey inns.
Imbued with a deep sense of history, from the rows of sea captains’ homes to our vibrant museums, yet offering a cutting-edge dining scene and upscale resorts, the Kennebunks are a modern escape with timeless appeal.
Kennebunk boasts three beautiful beaches—Gooch’s, Middle and Mother’s. These long, wide sandy beaches are the perfect place to walk, sun yourself, play in the surf, look for sand dollars, or just enjoy the sight of the waves rolling into shore. In Kennebunkport the three miles of Goose Rocks Beach is a favorite with walkers and the sand pail set. Colony Beach is much appreciated by those who love to scramble on its rocks and watch the surf.
You can also Vacation Like a President here, by taking in some of the sights the Bushes love best, including their beloved Walker’s Point, where the Bush family compound is located (best glimpsed from a parking area on Ocean Avenue). There’s also Ganny’s Garden on the Village Green, St. Ann’s Church, Anchor to Windward and, of course, the First Families Museum at White Columns.
Both Kennebunk and Arundel have entrances to the Eastern Trail—popular with folks seeking to stretch their legs, no matter the season.
The Kennebunks are a year-round destination, featuring spectacular fall foliage, the nationally known Christmas Prelude (named the number two Christmas event in America by HGTV!), our Paint the Town Red celebration in February, and our brand-new Launch! A Maritime Festival set to debut June 17–19 this year.
For generations, people have made the Kennebunks their favorite Maine destination. Isn’t it time you discovered all we have to offer?
