During my visit to the Boston area last month, I had the opportunity to take a road trip to Maine. I did some research on towns worthy of a day trip, and settled on visiting Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, and York. In this post, I share some photos from Kennebunkport, the town farthest north of the three.
Dock Square and Western Avenue
Western Avenue (Maine State Route 9) is the main road in the center of Kennebunkport. The majority of activity in Kennebunkport is in Dock Square, a colorful jumble of onetime fishing shacks that now house galleries, stores, and restaurants.
One of my favorite images I captured in Kennebunkport is below. This lady was cruising through town on the bike, either making a selfie video or "Facetiming" with friends or family:
Cape Porpoise Pier
Departing from Dock Square of Kennebunkport, I continued driving toward Cape Porpoise Pier. From here, one could see the Goat Island Lighthouse in the distance.
If You Go
If you decide to visit Kennebunkport, ME, I recommend doing a loop around this town. Beginning on Western Avenue and explore Dock Square. Stop by Mornings in Paris for coffee and Rococo Ice Cream (6 Spring Street) for ice cream if you are visiting Kennebunkport in the summertime afternoon. Continue toward Cape Porpoise Pier to take in the views of the Goat Island Lighthouse. Continue the loop toward Blowing Cave Park (there is ample street parking here) to take in views of the George H.W. Bush Compound (summer home) in the distance. Finish your loop back through center of town and check out Snug Harbor Farm on your way back (separate post forthcoming).
If you've ever been to Kennebunkport, which spots were your favorite and why?
