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

But whether you choose to enjoy the sunset before, after, or during your meal, there are ample opportunities to take in the view throughout the area! Most people know of Kennebunkport… Read More

Today’s temps soared near 80, which meant that many folks flocked to the beach, but the mornings were just a touch too chilly for eating on the porch. And with the hanging baskets of flowers up and the fresh coat of… Read More
