    A must EAT activity....get yourself a Lobster roll

    by 850prc Updated Oct 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Almost all of the local "joints" feature some form of the ubiquitous lobster roll. And, they're all pretty tasty, especially considering the plethora of fresh quality lobster available in the nearby Atlantic.

    Check out the lovely homes on Ocean Drive

    by 850prc Updated Oct 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Departing Kennebunkport from Dock Square, Ocean Drive winds its way slowly northward along the craggy Maine coast. Along the way and just outside Kennebunkport, you'll find numerous homes and estates exhibiting the coastal charm and character that we all associate with coastal Maine.

    Although certainly valuable and large, these homes do not seem pretentious or ostentatious. Rather, they exhibit the grandeur and class of a sea coast gentry lifestyle of days past.

    You have to enjoy a few hours on the coast

    "The Maine Coast" conjures up images of an angry sea battering a rocky coast. And, in person, it's a thing of beauty.

    If you walk along the coast on a brisk day, pull your sweater up a little tighter, and enjoy the Maine experience. Afterwards, go find yourself a cup of coffee in town and warm your well-chilled nose. : )

    The rocky coast of Maine....as advertised!

    Bush's Summer Home

    by Goner Updated Jul 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kennebunkport, with it's lobster boats, wild sea roses and summer homes dotting the rocky coastline, was a fixture of the Bush presidency and remains close to the heart of the Bush family. The three-story, stone-and-shingle home overlooking the ocean at Walker's Point has been in the family since the turn of the century. The former president has spent at least part of every summer since childhood here except when he was in the Navy during World War II. Locals have watched George W. and his siblings grow up.

    Tour the houses along Ocean Ave.
    Of what I saw of the houses in Kennebunkport, they were huge and spectacular. The Bush Compound is located on this street. If only the fog would go away for just a few minutes so I could just see this beautiful place (I have seen pictures of it). No such luck. It is definitely worth seeing.

    The photo is of the Southern Congregational Church of Kennbunkport, a typical New England steepled church. The churches are usually the tallest buildings in town.

    Town Square

    The town has decorated with lovely flowers, very colorful. The "Dock Square" area is filled with little stores of local art and the usual tourist stuff, but so much fun to browse.
