Top 10 Things About Kennebunkport in June

Kennebunkport is an incredible destination for a getaway at any time of year, especially now that the weather has warmed.  And with temps in the 70s and even the low 80s, June is certainly one of those times!  Granted, I might be a little biased, but there are millions of reasons that this coastal Maine destination is the ideal spot for your getaway.

So here’s a peek at my top ten reasons why visiting Kennebunkport in June is amazing:

10. June means lower rates and better deals.  Our Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast offers incredible reduced rates during the entire month (with the creation of a new “Shoulder Season” starting at just $169 per night), and many area activities and restaurants offer incentives to travelers (and residents) – follow us on Twitter for retweets of the best deals around.  Plus, you can save an extra 25% for almost two more weeks!

9.  Cool nights, and I don’t just mean fun!  In June, evenings are generally a little cooler than they are in July and August, which is great, because that means you’ll be very comfortable when snuggling with your special someone in front of your gas fireplace.  Plus, it’s the perfect temperature for shorts and a light sweater – my favorite!

8.  Restaurants are less crowded, which is always a win-win situation.  Smaller crowds mean better service and shorter (or non-existent) waits at your favorite Kennebunkport restaurants.

7.  Parking at secret beaches.  There are a variety of hidden gems on the water that have extremely limited parking for vehicles. In the height of the summer, we only dare to send summer guests on bikes, early in the morning or near sunset.  But in June, you’ll be able to claim that prime location.

6.  Soft-shell lobsters.  While the restaurants might tell you that hard shell lobsters are the thing to choose, I find that the soft-shell variety tend to have sweeter meat.  Plus they’re easier to break into – no need for those crackers, thanks!

5.  Great flowers.  It might not seem like an important thing, but when all the gardens in Kennebunkport are in bloom, there’s really nothing prettier!  And strolling though the historic district, you’ll be treated to the scent of the ocean and fresh flowers!

4.  Nunan’s Lobster Hut and the Clam Shack are open!  ‘Nuff said.

3.  Breakfast on the porch.  There’s nothing more relaxing that dining on our wraparound porch each morning, listening to the birds chirp and the horse-drawn carriage clop down the street.

2.  Peaceful beaches.  There’s ample opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sands that grace Kennebunkport Maine shorelines, and in June there’s little risk of tripping over abandoned sand toys, because the kids aren’t out of school yet.

1.  It’s beautiful!  And I mean spectacularly beautiful.  But you will just have to visit Kennebunkport to see it for yourself, and, of course, create your very own “Top Ten” list!2.  Peaceful beaches.  There’s ample opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sands that grace Kennebunkport Maine shorelines, and in June there’s little risk of tripping over abandoned sand toys, because the kids aren’t out of school yet.
