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.
You'll find Walker's Point about 3 miles south of downtown Kennebunkport.
