While this winter was especially long in New England, April is finally feeling like spring in Kennebunkport Maine, with lots of suns and seasonable temps on the forecast! Now, it doesn’t quite feel like summer vacation or time to take a plunge in the ocean, it really is lovely for exploring the seashore or heading out for a scenic bike ride. And with April vacations weeks coming up and Patriot’s Day looming, there are all kinds of reasons to head to Kennebunkport Maine for a “spring break.” So ditch the classic ideas of palm trees and teeny bikinis, and have a grown-up spring break in Kennebunkport this year! Don’t worry, though, because if the surf is really calling your name, we’ve always got lots of beach towels to dry you off!
In addition to the shopping and dining opportunities that exist all year long in Kennebunkport Maine and surrounding communities, there are oodles of great outdoor activities to occupy your visit this April. But without any foliage to block the sun’s rays (yet… they are coming!), don’t forget to pack some sunblock! This beautiful spring weather brings visitors out to enjoy walks and picnics along the Kennebunk beaches. Plus, it’s just a two minute drive from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. Others are dusting off the hiking boots and really getting in touch with nature, at the Wells Reserve/Laudholm Farm, Kennebunkport Conservation Trust properties, and the Kennebunk Land Trust trails. But some visitors might just be content to relax with a book on the wraparound porch at the Maine Stay Inn, in close proximity for yummy beverages and freshly baked cookies! So whether you’re on va-cay or just looking to play some hooky, Kennebunkport Maine is calling your name to come play this April!
