5 Best  Things to Do Kennebunkport Maine

Arts and Culture in Kennebunkport

The town is loaded with shops, galleries, and studios featuring paintings, photography, wind sculptures, and more. You can even find jewelry and kaleidoscopes created right here. All of these are great ways to take a Maine memory home with you. 

Hit Gooch’s Beach

There are several beaches in Kennebunkport, but not all of them are created equal. Gooch’s Beach, a sandy strip just outside town in Kennebunk, is one of the most popular. It not only has soft sand (rather than pebbles like many Maine beaches!) but also welcomes leashed dogs. Gooch’s Beach also has lifeguards on duty throughout the summer.

Ganny’s Garden 

This garden was dedicated to former First Lady Barbara Bush for her service to the community of Kennebunkport, complete with a tribute to her passion for mismatched Ked sneakers and books, of course. 

Tour the Seashore Trolley Museum

It features many exhibits of historic trolleys, buses, and other vehicles with fascinating information about the history of the trolley in the town. You can also play in the family area and ride a working trolley. 

Go on a Lobster Tour

It’s no secret that lobster is a particular star in Maine. Just off the coast of Kennebunkport, tourists can find Rugosa Lobster Tours. It offers a quintessential Maine experience on a real lobster boat. The tour sails from the Kennebunk River to the Nonantum Marina, offering a hands-on experience. 

Hike on Parson’s Way

Kennebunkport is all about nature, and hikers will love exploring! The best hiking trail in town is Parson’s Way. This 2-mile trail winds alongside Ocean Avenue and the shoreline, offering stunning views on all sides. It’s an easy hike that will provide interest for bird-watchers, runners, and explorers of all kinds.
