Visit the Kennebunks
More than just good times and great memories
17 Western Ave
Kennebunk, ME 04043

Just 90 miles north of Boston, there's a glorious little corner of Maine where lobstermen still command the sea, where shop owners greet their visitors like long-lost friends and where the time-warp charm of New England's old-world fishing villages takes us back to simpler times – back when leisurely summer evenings were spent on front porches enjoying soft ocean breezes and long winter nights were warmed by the company of loved ones, as a gentle snowfall blanketed the outside world in delicate lace.

Welcome to the pristine seaside communities of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Arundel and Cape Porpoise – also known as the "Kennebunks." We're so close you can spend just a day – yet we're worlds away from the stress of everyday living. Recapture childhood memories of sun-drenched days spent at the beach. Renew your sense of adventure by cruising out of Cape Porpoise on a working lobster boat, fly-fishing on the Mousam River or hitting the slopes at one of our nearby ski resorts. Let our small-town community spirit become part of the fabric of your life – for a day or for a lifetime.

Christmas Prelude is just one of many special events throughout the area catering to the every budget, age and interest. In February, many of our local inns offer affordable February is for Lovers get-away "couples" packages and don't forget to visit Main Street for Winterfest. In May, Kennebunk features its annual May Day Celebration, and President Bush Sr. and Mrs. Bush often partake in the Kennebunkport Memorial Day parade festivities. In June, the Kennebunkport Festival, a celebration of fine food, art and wine is a crowd pleaser! October brings a number of wonderful small town events! The Gathering of The Scarecrows is quickly becoming a family favorite. Scour the Kennebunks to look for the homemade Scarecrows and then attend the Scarecrow Parade to the Green in Kennebunkport! On the heels of this fun event comes Trick Or Treat in the Kennebunks, a wonderful time for the children to dress up and haunt the stores and shops displaying orange and black balloons.

The Kennebunk-Kennebunkport Chamber of Commerce is also part of The Maine Beaches Association, a group of the Chambers of Commerce from York to Old Orchard Beach. With over 35 miles of sandy beaches the Southern Maine Region is the most popular Maine destination for people looking for sun and fun on the miles of sandy beaches!
