Kittery Things to Do

  • The Kittery Outlets

    A big attraction in Kittery is the outlet stores. Located right on US 1; the outlet stores have a bit of something for everyone. Whenever my husband and I are in the area; we always stop and check out the outlets. The key to outlet shopping is knowing your goods and the prices so you can ensure that you are getting a bargain. Some stores are not...

Kittery Restaurants

  • Lobster & Sangria...Wat else do you...

    Robert's is what I call a local place smack in the middle of a tourist spot. Robert's is located on Route 1 on the same stretch of the Kittery Outlets....which means it gets crowded. Chris and I have passed this restaurant several times during our trips and finally decided to try it out in April 2010 much to our delight and have returned many times...

  • Wow...the Food is Incredibly Good

    Robert's Maine Grill is located right on Route 1 in Kittery amidst the busy outlets. The building stands out with it's lighthouse in front and usually bustling parking lot. We had passed by this restaurant many times and didn't go in thinking it might be just a tourist trap. After doing some investigating we discovered that this places is a...

  • The Best Seafood in America

    This restaurant is the best seafood I have eaten in my life. It is common for me to come up from Boston just to eat their clams. If you are ever in the area, stop in here and you won't be disappointed. It is in a great loctation right down the street from all the great outlet stores. CLAMS, CALAMARI, SCALLOPS


Kittery Transportation

  • Driving

    Driving to Kittery is the best way to get there. It's literally right over the border from New Hampshire. We've never hit traffic even with construction and holiday visitors on the road.

  • The easiest way to get there...

    The easiest way to get there is by car.From Boston & Points South: Take Route 95 North to Exit 3 in Maine, marked Kittery/Coastal Route 1 North. The Kittery Outlets are a half mile beyond, on Route 1 North. From Portland & Points North: Take Route 95 South and immediately after the Maine Turnpike toll booth in York, take Exit 4 marked:...

  • Good Priced Tee Shirts

    My wife is picky when it comes to her tee shirts and this store usually has the fit and style she wants. My wife prefers v-neck tee shirts in a soft cotton and they have them here in abundance. During our last shopping excursion in May 2015; my wife picked up several tees for $7.99 a piece which is amazingly cheap for the quality you get.

  • A Great Sale on Knockaround Shoes

    Bass is where I usually go for knockaround work shoes that won't break the bank. They are always having sales so it's easy to save a buck or two. Our last visit here I found a pair of sneakers, loafers and a pair of boots al marked down significantly. I was fortunate to find my size and color preference (if they don't carry your size or color...

  • Good Shoes but no real discount

    This store carries shoes and accesories for men and women. My wife likes the Albo brand for knock around shoes so we chose to check out the store. My wife found a pair or metallic flats that she liked and the price was good at $29.99 Just like any other outlet store you need to know your prices so you know you are getting a good deal.


Kittery Local Customs

  • Eat Some Maine Lobster!!

    You're in Maine, so eat some Maine Lobster(or "lobsta" as they pronounce it here). Whenever hubby and I are in Kittery we stop at Robert's Maine Grill for some tasty Lobster. Whether it's a full steamed Lobster or a Lobster BLT; Lobster is a must when visiting Maine.

  • Enjoy Some Maine Lobsta!

    When visiting Maine you simply must have the "Lobsta"(how the locals say it). The Lobster in Maine is very tasty and delicious...whether it's in a roll, sandwich, stuffed or just boiled...try some for yourself.

  • Farm Stands

    We came across a farm stand in our travels that day and decided the strawberries looked too good to pass up. They were really sweet and quite good. It made for a nice snack in between stops.

    After entering Kittery from Portsmouth to the south, head east on Hwy 103 along the water. You can see the older A frame houses along the coast or stop and hike one of the trails en route. There are two forts along this route, open in the summer, and several places to stop and take in a view of the water.
