Best Times to Visit Kennebunkport

The best time to visit Kennebunkport is between June and October, when the weather is at its warmest. The only downside: nightly rates will be at their peak during this lengthy season. March through May is a less pricey and less crowded time to visit, but businesses are slow to open after the big chill from November to February. Temperatures can dip to the low teens, so you should pack thick layers.
