If you don’t already love The Kennebunks, you will shore-ly fall for our seaside community in fall! See our Fall photos out and about Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Lower Village and Cape Porpoise.

The beach walks are brilliant, and the sales in the Dock Square shops, art galleries and boutiques of Dock Square and downtown Kennebunk are also worth falling for.
Then there’s the Kennebunk Farmers Market every Saturday from 8am – 1pm.
