Travel Tips for Kennebunkport

Sleep Late in the Kennebunks

by pchamlis

They take life kind of easy up in the Kennebunks. There doesn't seem to be much happening early in the morning, so unless you're planning to take a nice pre-breakfast walk in the cool Maine morning (which is actually a good idea), go ahead and sleep a while longer.

Have a leisurely breakfast at about 8:30 or so, and then head on your day's fun. There's no need to hurry. Every breakfast we had at our B&B (the 1802 Inn, see separate accomodation tip and travelogue on this establishment) was terrific.

Among the best items were the asparagus and potato fritata and the waffles with pecan-maple syrup.

All sides of the political spectrum

by pchamlis

Kennbunkport may be the long-time home of the Bush family. But, it's not a love-em or leave-em kind of town.

George and Barbara Bush seem to be favorites among the locals, but the village itself is quite tolerant of all points of view. Political debate is a New England tradition, right? The scene pictured below from a local bookstore kind of sums up Kennebunkport. All sides get an airing.

Unique cars driving around town....

by pchamlis

There were quite a few unique cars driving in and around Kennebunkport. Being a rich and toney destination, there were the pre-requisite batch of Jaguars and Mercedes.

But, I also saw some very nice and well-preserved older autos. The two best looking cars I saw in Kennebunkport were

(1) The antique Citroen pictured below, motoring along Ocean Drive on Sunday afternoon

(2) A hot red Dodge Viper pulling into Dock Square early one morning.

Cape Porpoise

by KarenandCory

Cape Porpoise is the quintessential New England fishing village. Walk out onto the pier and admire the picturesque scenery of lobster boats, fishermen hard at work, and Goat Island Light in the distance. This place whispers poetry in your ear, it's that charming.

We ALL scream for ice cream

by pchamlis about The Port Scoop Shop (Ben & Jerry's ice cream)

Let's see, when you associate New England with ice cream, you're bound to come up with Ben & Jerry's. Vermont-based, this brand is loved throughout the USA, and boasts colorfully named flavors of extremely rich and creamy frozen treats. (Note, please see my Vermont pages and check out our visit to the Ben & Jerry's factory in Waterbury, Vermont)

Anyway, if you're going to have an ice cream cone, Ben & Jerry's is a great choice, and that's what's featured at the Port Scoop Shop. My favorite B&J flavor is "Cool Brittania", but they didn't have that one here. So, I settled for another winner..."Chunky Monkey", which has banana flavor, bananas, nuts and coconut. Good stuff.

My wife had the much beloved "Cherry Garcia", which was named in honor of the late Jerry Garcia, lead guitarist for the Grateful Dead.
