5 Things to Expect at a Maine Bed and Breakfast

B&Bs have been a part of my traveling experience for as long as I can remember, but there are plenty of people who have never experienced a Maine bed and breakfast before.

Honoring Vets on Veterans Day in Kennebunkport Maine

While many people will enjoy a day off tomorrow and welcome the break in their work week, it can be very easy to forget the reason we are given an extra day to relax and explore beautiful places like Kennebunkport Maine. Unlike Memorial Day, which honors fallen veterans, most communities don’t celebrate with a parade or armed salute in a local cemetery, Veterans Day is a day to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces. And there is… Read More

Celebrating National Pizza Month in Kennebunkport

Even though the leaves are just beginning to turn, it is already almost October, and that means National Pizza Month! And while you may associate the month of October with pumpkins, candy corn, and fun-size candy bars, pizza is the food of the month (although our waistlines might prefer if it were National Broccoli Month instead).
