Perhaps you've visited the Kennebunks on vacation – maybe even fallen in love with the area and envision moving here. If so, we welcome you! This part of rural small-town Maine isn't just a wonderful vacation destination, but it's also home to thousands of year-round residents. Here, you'll find a strong sense of community wherever you go – whether you join a church, become involved in community organizations or enroll your children in our outstanding school system, with its new elementary and middle schools and the only International Baccalaureate program in Maine.
Craving city life? Looking for employment? We're just off the Maine Turnpike, a short 30-minute drive from Portsmouth to the south and Portland to the north, and within commuting distance of Northern Massachusetts.

So, whether you're starting a new job, opening your own business, or simply settling down to start the rest of your life, the Kennebunks offer something for everyone who's looking for the way life should be.
