Celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine

I may be a little bit biased, but celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine is always a really special time of year, and I certainly think our turkey day visitors agree!  One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is getting to watch Kennebunkport prepare itself for Christmas Prelude.  I am particularly excited this year, because a recent cold snap has made it feel a lot more like the holiday season, and many of the leaves are off the trees,

which means it will look a lot less silly when folks start stringing lights on their trees and shrubs.

As you may know, I am a teeny bit partial to Kennebunkport Maine at Thanksgiving, because it marked my very first introduction to this amazing town.  It seems like ages ago that I crossed that green bridge into Kennebunkport while checking out colleges during high school, and I never would have guessed that this place would become my home.  Man, was I lucky that my parents chose to visit a Kennebunkport bed and breakfast on our trip!  And while I didn’t end up attending a Maine college, we enjoyed our first Thanksgiving here so much that we visited again the following year.  It was the perfect opportunity to relax!  We sat by a gently glowing fire, reading books and playing games, enjoyed scenic walks along the ocean (yes, it is beautiful even when the weather is a bit brisk), and perused the incredible shopping opportunities in town.  And, I must admit, we even hit up the outlet shops to knock off some Christmas shopping.  So this year, whether you’re joining us solo, sans family, or with the whole clan in tow, you’re sure to enjoy a real getaway.  And best of all, you can enjoy an amazing Thanksgiving meal without any of the work!  As usual, there are lots of incredible restaurants waiting to dish up an old fashioned turkey dinner with all the fixins or something Maine inspired (lobster, anyone?), and we’re happy to help you pick one that’s right for you.  We’re looking forward to a wonderful Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine and hope that you are too!
