Travel Photo Essay: Kennebunkport,
The Kennebunk River separates Kennebunkport and Lower Kennebunk -- with some grand coastal Maine scenery in between, of course.
Article and photos by Eric H.
At times during the summer and revered Christmas tree lighting ceremony where the downtown is beautifully lit with thousands of lights, Kennebunkport can seem a bit hectic and not built for the crowds -- this is, after all, a small little town. If you seek some peace and quiet, have no fear: Kennebunkport has areas of nearly perfect solitude, especially on the outskirts at the isolated stretch of beach at Goose Rocks, and Cape Porpoise with its views of Goat Island Lighthouse and the brief yet charming village mix of lobster pounds, fish markets, local stores and a few restaurants. Kennebunkport is a special Maine destination, one that we can recommend as one of the true quintessential coastal Maine towns.
Dock Square features a quaint coastal Maine look, leading to the water. Here, you will find plenty of shops and restaurants.
Kennebunkport often features a pleasing belend of historical architectural styles.
The ride along Ocean Drive features some spectacular, classic rocky coastal Maine views.
Temple St. features well-maintained older homes and the South Congregational Church
Goose Rocks Beach offers a peaceful solitude should the pace of the summer downtown crowds become too much.
