Introducing The Kennebunks
Together, the towns of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Kennebunk Beach make up the Kennebunks. Kennebunkport, the most famous of the three towns, is beautiful, historical and absolutely packed in summer. Walk anywhere in the town to see the pristine 100- and 200-year-old houses and mansions, manicured lawns and sea views. Even in fall, visitors converge on Kennebunkport to browse the art galleries, overnight in its gracious inns and drive along the ocean to admire the view. Ocean Ave presents the most dramatic vistas, but the back streets, inland from the Kennebunk River and the sea, are less busy.
