Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport

I may be a little bit biased, but celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine is a particularly special time of year, and each year our turkey day visitors agree!  One of the must enjoyable things about Thanksgiving is getting to watch Kennebunkport prepare itself for the holiday season and our famous festival, Christmas Prelude.

B&Bs for Vets in Kennebunkport Maine

Just in time for Columbus Day Weekend, leaf peeper officials have declared that the Maine Coast is almost at the peak of fall foliage color!  Both the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry  and Yankee Magazine are reporting that the leaves in the Kennebunkport Maine area report that the trees are boasting over 50% of color change, but are nearing their peak of color (around 70-100%).
