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.

Halloween in Kennebunkport & KenneBoo!

Halloween in Kennebunkport and Kennebunk is freakishly fun, for kids and for kids that never grew up. Just drive around town and see the crazy, scary, silly scarecrows  and pumpkins for a hint of how spirited the Kennebunks can be. You might even see some local “Sand-Witches” …wild women dressed in witchy attire pub crawling about The Kennebunks… a booh’sie tradition among the “desperate housewives of KPT”. As for the best decorations, if you’ve never seen Kennebunk’s Summer Street decorated in the dark on Hallow Eve, then you’re in for a treat … and a trick or two. Local legends tell that many […]

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. Kennebunkport Maine’s “off-season” could be our best kept secret as it’s really Vacationland… but without the crowd! 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.

Put your paddles together for all the kayakers, canoers and SUP-ers.

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.
