Here’s a little secret from the Maine seacoast: You can walk the beach all year round. In fact, its incredibly serene and beautiful in spring. Mind you, locals complain about the weather, “Geezuz, what a wintah. Springs a slow stata, aintit.” It’s what Mainers do for fun, part of their Maine slang is a slew of wicked weather expressions, ayuh!
But the reality is the ocean mediates the temperatures along the southern Maine Coast. Warm sunny days in March and April are brilliant as the sun sparkles off the deep blue sea. Its truly magnificent, even Mainers would agree.
Another gem of spring in Kennebunkport is the dining and lodging deals. You can score a night at the uber-romantic Captain Lord Mansion or a waterfront suite at Breakwater Inn and Spa on the River or The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel in town near Dock Square.
Bring the family for spring break at the Rhumb Line Resort where the kids will love the indoor pool and hot tub, and parents will love the price with breakfast and wifi included.
If those beach walks sound tempting, staying at The Seaside Inn directly on Kennebunk Beach is the best. This 9th generation Seaside Inn has prime location and obviously a long wonderful tradition of hospitality. Their seaside ocean view outdoor hot tub is pretty nice too, “wicked nice – matter a fact” – more Maine speak.
The dining deals in Kennebunkport and Lower Village Kennebunk are fantastic before the busy season of summer begins. You can enjoy Happy Hour pricing at Stripers, David’s KPt, and Alisson’s, buck a shuck oyster night, burger and a brew deals, lobster specials, even live entertainment, trivia nights and karaoke too.
So come celebrate spring on the seacoast. Kennebunkport has wonderful dining, shopping, art galleries and exceptional lodging deals – and funny locals – be sure you complain about the weather, or work, or your mother in law, when you see them.
Spring up to Kennebunkport Maine! You’ll be glad you did…
