To get a feel for Kennebunkport's personality, spend an afternoon in Dock Square.

An active monastery, St. Anthony's serves as a popular rest stop for travelers, as well as a religious retreat for the devout.

It's not hard to understand why Gooch's Beach would be one of Kennebunkport's most popular (read: crowded) stretches of sand. Its gorgeous vistas are celebrated in all of Maine and it's the closest beach to the downtown area. Travelers say it's a great beach to bring your family and dogs are allowed on the beach as well. Recent visitors warn that when the tide comes in, the beach disappears, so check the tide schedule before visiting and be prepared to pick up and move your stuff should the waves rush in far.

This historic stone chapel was built in 1887 and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. It's a Kennebunkport staple that's lauded for its stone facade, its stained-glass windows and its surrounding gardens. The church is also popular for wedding ceremonies. Recent visitors said the grounds are peaceful, the structure is unique and the colorful stained-glass windows inside are beautiful. Many say you don't have to spend much time here, but it's a quick "must-see" spot.

Travelers looking to play paparazzi should head out on Ocean Avenue to Walker's Point, home to the Bush family compound. While in office, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush hosted a variety of influential heads-of-state at their family summer home, including former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Russian politico Vladimir Putin. The Bush family still spends their summer vacations on the picturesque property. Visitors love the breathtaking vistas on the aptly named Ocean Avenue and suggest stopping at the lookout point to get a photo with the Bush compound in the background. That being said, there isn't much else to do at Walker's Point – and the secret service doesn't let you get too close – so a brief visit is best.
