National Press: What they’re saying about the Kennebunks

Your iconic Maine experiences will be here too-the lighthouse dotted coastline, the miles of sandy beaches, and the fresh lobster sandwiches followed by warm blueberry pie. Yet, just off the beaten path from these idyllic Maine treasures, you’ll find a world of experiences equally worth a visit. 

While some businesses do close for the winter, the fall and spring are excellent times to visit as well, with less tourists and a relaxing, quieter atmosphere in which to take in the sights. Here are some of the best!

It’s the long-standing local charm—a concoction of homemade blueberry pies, straight-from-the-sea scallops, and lazy games of bocce on Kennebunk Beach—that makes this beloved destination a New England classic. And that’s one thing we’re certain will never change.
