Kennebunkport – The Destination for Lobster Lovers!
The old-time shipbuilding village of Kennebunkport is much like a Currier and Ives print come to life. It is the “real deal” and a vacation destination brimming with activities to suit most travelers needs.
- Take an educational lobster boat cruise
- Go on a Whale Watch
- Play a round of golf at The Cape Arundel Golf Club

- Bicycle along the relatively flat terrain is easy and a good way to access the many area attractions.
- Or perhaps you might indulge yourself with an afternoon stroll through the Kennebunkport Village historic district where you’ll pass by elaborate Federal and Victorian manses built by ship builders, sea captains, and wealthy merchants, many of these buildings are now housing bed & breakfast inns.
- Visit Kennebunkport’s riverside Dock Square crammed with small shops and galleries, many selling vacation clothing, gifty items, hand-made pottery and watercolor seascapes; others are Eco-chic boutiques offering a variety of tourist memorabilia goodies. Of course there are several purveyors of locally-made maple syrup, blueberry jams; as well, there are the little food shacks offering ubiquitous lobster rolls.
- No trip to Kennebunkport is complete without a trip to nearby Cape Porpoise where lobster boats line the harbor like soldiers in row and you may catch a glimpse of Goat Island Lighthouse; additionally, tours to the island are now available in season.
