Best Things To Do in Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport is your typical coastal New England town where watery activities reign supreme. Hang out by the shore for a taste of the local water sports -- like fishing, sailing and sunbathing. Or head into Dock Square to sample the area's fresh seafood. After you've had your fill of the village, head down Ocean Drive for some Bush chasing at Walker's Point. But remember to be polite and mind the secret service, the ex-presidents are on vacation too.
