Things to do in Kennebunkport

Favorite Summer Activities on the Maine Coast

After looking at this week’s forecast and my recent blogs, I decided that we are way overdue for a list of some of the favorite activities during the summertime and early fall along the Maine Coast.  It’s not really fair to limit this list to Kennebunkport Maine, because there is so much to do in the general area, and most visitors do actually visit out of Kennebunkport town lines at some point during their visit! They might not actually be aware that… Read More

A Summer Evening on the Maine Coast

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day, and it gave way to an equally beautiful evening, which just begged for a stroll along the Maine Coastline in Kennebunkport and through Dock Square.  A night like tonight just begs for dinner on the water, and fortunately for visitors to Kennebunkport (and those of us who live here too!) there are lots of wonderful outdoor dining establishments in the area.  Just steps from the Maine Stay Inn, you’ll find the Arundel Wharf Restaurant, a classic… Read More

Kennebunkport Ice Cream is Tops in the Nation

Sometimes I worry about sounding like a broken record, because there is so much I love about Kennebunkport, and one of those things is the incredible ice cream at Dock Square’s Rococo.  And recently the travel news confirmed what we at the Maine Stay Inn already know – that Rococo has some of the best ice cream in the entire country! Not just in Maine, or even New England, but Kennebunkport’s Rococo sits firmly in the list of the top ten best… Read More

Circus Smirkus Is Coming to the Maine Coast!

Every summer, the Big Top returns to Kennebunkport as Circus Smirkus begins its run on the Maine Coast!  This coming Thursday and Friday will bring four shows to the Rockin’ Horse Stables, just a few miles from the Maine Stay Inn.  This incredible youth circus tours New England with its pint sized performers.  But don’t let their size or age fool you, because these 10 to 18 year olds have more talent than you could ever imagine!  Their single ring circus will be… Read More

MaineStage Shakespeare Is Coming to the Maine Stay!

  Kennebunkport is really lucky to have incredible opportunities for enjoying theater in the area, and this year, a fantastic Shakespeare company has brought its open air performances to the Kennebunkport Town Green this summer.  This weekend, though, MacBeth is coming to the Maine Stay Inn! This Saturday afternoon, you can enjoy delicious treats in our backyard, and enjoy a scene performed by the talented actors of the MaineStage Shakespeare Company.  This four-year-old company features graduate students in the performing arts from… Read More

10 Best Things About Summer on the Maine Coast

Even though tonight was little bit cloudy, it was pretty much a perfect summer evening in Kennebunkport Maine.  The weather is warm, and the slight breeze kicks up the smell of salt air, making a light cardigan the perfect thing to pair with shorts.  There’s not humidity, which means perfect sleeping weather, and the sun doesn’t set until quite late.  And after spending the day working in the garden, I really got thinking about some of my favorite things about summer along… Read More

A Night of Theater in Kennebunkport

After a day exploring the great outdoors in Kennebunkport, the idea of a relaxing evening at the theater can be really appealing, and fortunately there are lots of great opportunities right nearby!  So whether you want to see a live musical, a traditional Shakespearean play, or a feature film, you won’t have to venture far from the Maine Stay Inn to enjoy the production of your choice.  This year, MaineStage Shakespeare is bringing its phenomenal open air Shakespeare performances to the Kennebunkport Town Green and the Colony… Read More

What Should We Do On Our Maine Coast Visit?

I get asked all the time what people should do on their visit to the Maine Coast, and the answer really is “whatever you want!”  Honestly, there is so much to do and so much coastline to see that visitors have to pick activities based on where their interests lie.  I mean, someone who is an avid outdoorsman (or woman) is going to have a very different “must do” list than an avid shopper.  And while I probably am one to choose… Read More

A Maine Coast Summer Vacation

Now that the Fourth of July has come and gone, it is officially summer vacation time, and there’s no better place to enjoy a summer vacation on the Maine Coast than in Kennebunkport!  Now you may think that I am a little biased towards this charming town, but the truth is that I’m “from away” and, after exploring many of the coastal vacation areas in New England, I still think that Kennebunkport is pretty darn special.  For more than a few reasons! So today I’ve… Read More

July 4th Fireworks in Kennebunkport Maine

July 4th is upon us, and apparently so is a little storm – but that’s not going to put a damper on the fun and festivities in Kennebunkport Maine.  So despite the fact that tomorrow’s fireworks have been postponed, it looks like the bulk of the storm will actually happen overnight tonight, leaving us with some great weekend weather!  Not to worry, though, the famous fireworks off of Kennebunk Beach will only be delayed 24 hours and go off (without a hitch,… Read More
