Best Lobster in Kennebunkport

The 2nd question every visitors asks as they arrive in Kennebunkport, “where do I get the best lobster?” The 1st being, “how do we get to see President Bush?” Folks eagerly want to see Walkers Point out Ocean Ave, and really want to have a glimpse at President’s 41 and 43 and the Bush Compound where two former presidents and their family spend every summer.

Kennebunkport’s Launch – a Floating Success!

Launch – a Maritime Festival is among the best fests in Maine, a celebration along the Kennebunk River. Its a wave of fun – five days of fishing, a boat parade, lobster bakes, fun runs of pirates and mermaids on the beach, Chef Competitions and much more.
