Gawk at some mansions along Ocean Road

The ride through Kennebunk, in my opinion is much nicer than when you get to destination point of Kennebunkport. It is the first town before you get to the point by the other water and inlet. They have elegant old style homes of the 1800's and the town is relatively quiet....

Allison's: Best Bar Atmosphere in Kennebunkport
This place was packed with people which isn't suprising except for the fact that we were in town before the actual tourist season started. Good atmosphere right on the main strip in Kennebunkport by the docks.

Federal Jack: Good food and great live music
Very good and pricey food and very good live music. We stayed inside (too cold to dine outside) but also the terrace is really cute if it is warm enough. There I have realized it is forbidden to sleep in bars in Maine (it was my 2° day in the US and the jet lag was still a...
