    GOAT ISLAND LIGHT

    by LoriPori Written Oct 6, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Kennebunkport, Maine
    Cape Porpoise Village is built around the shores of its harbor, which a cluster of large and small islands protect. On one of them stands the baby lighthouse of the coast GOAT ISLAND LIGHT.
    Cape Porpoise, near the mouth of the Kennebunk River, was named by Captain John Smith, for a school of porpoises he saw there.
    Established in August 1833 for $6,000. Goat Island Light was erected to help guide mariners into the sheltered harbour at Cape Porpoise, a busy fishing center for many years. A 20-foot stone tower and dwelling were built.

    KENNEBUNKPORT

    by LoriPori Written Oct 6, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: During the last century KENNEBUNKPORT has become a popular resort area and even more so in recent years as many sightseers come to view the summer home of former U.S. President George H. W. Bush, also visited by his son President George W. Bush and his family. The town includes Cape Porpoise, the original settlement and Goose Rocks Beach. Beautiful 18th and 19th century houses line the Ocean Avenue. Goat Island Lighthouse, just out on the water from the Cape Porpoise Pier, is a favourite viewing spot.

    Mary's Cookies

    by kidkilowatt Written Feb 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In all of the years I have been coming to Kennebunkport, I have never actually seen Mary in the flesh, but every morning she drops her wares (giant chocolate chip cookies) to all of the local markets, shops and cafe type places. It is best if you can secure a cookie in the morning, as they are the freshest then- gooey and delicious. I would say that Mary's chocolate chip cookies are right up there with the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had, so seek one out and judge for yourself.

    How about a buggy ride around Kennebunkport

    by Goner Updated Jul 25, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Kennebunkport is filled with tourists, but it doesn't take away from it's ambience of a layed back town, you immediately relax and wander from store-to-store with all the others. If you need a respite from shopping, hop on the buggy for a ride around the town.

    I wish I could see the Bush...

    by Easty Written Oct 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I wish I could see the Bush compound when I was there. But it was just too foggy. I just hung around the center of town. It had a bunch of nice little shops. Both my mother and I stopped into a shop that made its own chocolate. The chocolate was out of this world. We made the best out of a foggy day.
