Area natives, local residents (otherwise known as “transplants” like me!) and visitors alike have known for ages that Kennebunkport is a truly incredible place, one that really takes you back in time. Yes, this quaint little village is the kind of place where kids still play outside, ride bikes along the beach, and people leave their doors open and the keys in their cars. Strangers smile and wave as though you’re an old friend they encountered along tree lined streets and walking paths by the ocean. It’s such a happy place and that’s why we all love it (and the gorgeous beaches, the cute shops, the amazing restaurants, and the great galleries certainly don’t hurt either!). But this week, Coastal Living Magazine nominated Kennebunkport, Maine as one of the happiest seaside towns in America. It’s such an honor! The list of nominees from all around the nation is quite the collection, so even being nominated says a tremendous amount about this charming town. Now the fun begins – collecting enough votes to win, because we all know that Kennebunkport really is the happiest place in the country! So we need some help – between now and February 28 you can cast your vote here (and hopefully many of them) in support of Kennebunkport as America’s Happiest Seaside Town!
