Three great girlfriends checked out of our Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast after a week-long shopping trip today and headed home, with a car so full I don’t know how they saw out their back window! But these lovely ladies got me thinking… There comes a time in every woman’s life when she just has to shop. Now fellas, I’m not discriminating. I am sure you have your shopping needs too, but, well, I can only speak from my experience, which, in case you didn’t know already, is as a female! Next time the mood strikes, pack your bags
and head to Kennebunkport Maine, the perfect spot for your next shopping extravaganza.
So while Kennebunkport may not be the shopping capital of the universe, it is home to a plethora of fantastic boutique shops and amazing galleries. Just steps from our Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast lies Dock Square – it’s just far enough that you won’t hear any of the hustle and bustle, but close enough that I can walk backwards and blindfolded in five minutes flat (not that I’ve tried, but you get the idea!). Personally, I am a huge fan of Abacus and Complements, both fusions of modern art galleries and funky boutiques – perfect for one-stop shopping. Want some fun, hip clothing and accessories without breaking the bank? Try Zen. Designer chic? Benoit’s has you covered (literally). If you need beachwear or reminders of your summer vacation to Kennebunkport Maine, then don’t miss American Sailor. Frankly, there isn’t a single shop in town (and there are many more than I could ever mention) that isn’t adorable and unique, so don’t miss ‘em! And if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, just ask – concierge services are one of the hidden perks of a Bed and Breakfast.
Outlet shopping more “up your alley”? Our Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast is centrally located between two phenomenal outlet centers – perfect for hitting up both on your girlfriends getaway! About 25 minutes to our south lies the town of Kittery, home to the famous Tanger Outlets. Hundreds of shops flank Route 1 and could keep you busy for days. But on your way back the the Maine Stay, make sure you stop at Yummies, a candy shop with over 10,000 pounds on display! All that candy is sure to spike your blood sugar, even before afternoon tea at our Bed and Breakfast.
Freeport, home of L.L.Bean, is an easy 40 minute drive to our north. Yes, you really can shop 24 hours a day in the store that doesn’t have any locks! But this outlet town is designed for your shopping pleasure, where you can enjoy the feel of a Maine village with the perks of an outlet mecca. So the next time your Visa needs a workout or your bff has a rough breakup, pack your bags to fill your bags in Kennebunkport Maine.
