So while last night’s surprise thunderstorms sidelined my plans for some outdoor fun, a day like today reminded me of some of my favorite things about Kennebunkport Maine. Now, we all know that there are way too many amazing things about this seaside town, so I will do my darnedest to keep this list reasonable. But since I am making this a short one, apologies if I left anyone else’s faves off!
- The beach – Whenever. No seriously, in rain or shine, snow covered or so-hot-you-could-fry-an-egg, the Kennebunkport Maine beaches are incredible. Mother nature does such a wonderful job at keeping the coastline exciting, and making sure that you can never get bored looking at it! But fortunately for us, the variety of beaches and coastline in and around town has something for everyone – secluded stretches of
sandy beach, classic rocky Maine coast, slips of waterfront meandering through our quaint village, and even beaches with wide paved paths for those who want to enjoy the ocean without dealing with the sand. Plus, unlike many vacation destinations, you can head there on foot from the Maine Stay Inn or by car and not worry about parking – we’ve got plenty!
- The food – Most of you know that enjoying great culinary creations is one of my favorite past times, and fortunately for me, Kennebunkport Maine has eateries that can compete with those from any big city. So whether you’re craving a simple boiled lobster or a stunning five-star tasting menu, we’ve got you covered. Yum!
- The shops – It makes sense that my two favorite kinds of shopping are for food and room decor, but that doesn’t do me much good come Christmas and birthday time. Fortunately Kennebunkport Maine makes it so easy for me! The amazing mix of stores in Dock Square means that I can find almost anything for that perfect gift. On the rare occasion when I can’t, I know that I’ve got two world-class Outlet centers barely a half hour away!
- The outdoor fun – If there’s anything I love more than food, it’s playing outside. So whether it’s enjoying cross country skiing and horse-drawn sleigh riding in the winter or hiking, biking and running in the summer, I am in. Over the past few years, the amount of conservation land in and around Kennebunkport Maine has just exploded, which means that there are about a gagillion options for peaceful and pristine outdoor activities.
I could go on all night about why I love this town, but you’ll just have to come and explore Kennebunkport Maine for yourself!
