Now that’s some great weather!

my name, and I know that I am not the only one, because I’ve found lots more sandy footprints to vacuum up recently.  So while lots of folks are enjoying the seashore, not too many are going for a swim.  Although there are some brave souls hitting the surf out there – with wet suits, of course!  And whether you decide to take a plunge or just dip in your fingers or toes, we’ve got lots of beach towels to dry you off!

This April vacation week, folks are definitely drinking in the ocean air with strolls through town, picnics on the beach, and bike rides along the coast, but there’s also plenty of shopping and dining going on too!  The Freeport and Kittery Outlets are definitely being frequented.  I mean, you’ve got to add to your spring wardrobe, right?  Plus, with the shops in Dock Square switching over to their Spring/Summer hours, there are lots of great sales going on and new products filling the windows and shelves just around the corner from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast.  And with the seasonal restaurants opening what almost seems like daily, there’s lots of delicious meals to enjoy to sustain you for the limitless activities in and around the area. But many visitors to Kennebunkport during April vacation week are content to relax in our backyard and wraparound porch while they rest, relax, and recharge.  So whether you’re on va-cay or just looking to play some hooky, Kennebunkport is calling your name to come and enjoy April vacation week nonetheless!
