Visiting The Maine Coast in September

It’s hard to believe that the end of August is here and Labor Day Weekend is fast approaching, but fortunately September is a fabulous month in Kennebunkport Maine! Honestly, September is really the forgotten month of summer on the Maine Coast. This month brings with it cooler evenings – perfect for a cardigan or sweatshirt during your post-dinner stroll – but the days are almost identical to those during August. So don’t put your swimsuit away just yet, because there is plenty of… Read More

Enjoying A Classic Lobster Dinner in Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport is one of those coastal Maine spots where you can find delicious lobster almost anywhere, but there are very few spots I believe serve the perfect classic lobster dinner. Honestly, though, this is Maine. The lobster is going to be good and fresh just about anywhere. Now, I am a lifelong lobster connoisseur (seriously, just ask my mother), so I will be the first to admit that there is an immense difference between a decent lobster and a knock your socks off, crave-inducing, must drive hundreds… Read More
