February is for Lovers
Hey all you lovebirds! Valentines Day is a magical time in Kennebunkport, when locals “Paint the Town Red”. You should treat your sweetheart to for V Day in KPT.

Our coastal Maine village has managed to turn the coldest month of the year into a time of romantic winter retreat. Of course, the colder it gets, the more reason to snuggle up with your sweetheart.

Restaurant Favorites in Kennebunkport
While it’s certain that the Maine Coast is a rather seasonal tourist attraction, many are unaware of the extensive beauty of Kennebunkport during the winter. Those that fall for the charm and beauty that winter brings to this coastal town, take advantage of the affordable rates that many luxurious house rentals and gorgeous hotels offer during the “off season”. When vacationing in Kennebunkport this time of year, visitors can find many restaurants that remain open throughout the year. Here, I list my personal favorite restaurants in Kennebunkport.

Go Where the Locals Go
You may have the misguided assumption that the Maine coast turns to ghost towns after summer. In fact, perhaps that’s what some savvy travelers and Kennebunkport locals want you to think.

Our Kennebunkport blog offers ideas on romantic places to stay, popular events, Kennebunkport tours, but today, we’re going to talk about how to have fun like a local.
