The Kennebunks

For generations, The Kennebunks has been a favorite Maine vacation destination.

Something Special, Year-Round 

Visit the towns of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Arundel, where you can spend your days lounging on our beautiful beaches and your nights dining in award-winning restaurants. 

A colorful explosion of foliage delights in autumn, and the warmer days and smaller crowds of spring give plenty of room to stretch. It’s time you discovered all that The Kennebunks have to offer.

Shop local shops and galleries in our beachside towns.
Discover Our Intown Charms

Experience one of many historical treasures, like White Columns, the Brick Store Museum, or the Seashore Trolley Museum. Grab some fried clams or the best lobster roll you’ve ever tasted at one of our casual eateries. We even have a Lobster Roll Trail guide to help you find the perfect roll! Popular events include Christmas Prelude in December and Launch! A Maritime Festival in June.

Shop in our unique, independently-owned stores, then relax in a range of places to stay, from 5-star hotels and elegant B&Bs to cozy inns. Though filled with a deep sense of history, from the rows of sea captains’ homes to our vibrant museums, the Kennebunks are a modern escape with timeless appeal.

Enjoy the Outdoors
Kennebunk boasts three beautiful beaches: Gooch’s, Middle, and Mother’s. These long, wide, sandy beaches are the perfect place to walk, sun yourself, play in the surf, look for sand dollars, or enjoy the sight of the waves rolling into shore. In Kennebunkport, the three miles of Goose Rocks Beach are a favorite with walkers and the sand pail set. Colony Beach is the choice for those who love to scramble on rocks and watch the surf dash the shore. 
 
Surf, take a boat tour, climb on a stand-up paddleboard, or head out to sea on a whale watch. Whether strolling the serene grounds of St. Anthony’s Franciscan Monastery, kayaking on the Kennebunk and Mousam rivers, or walking or mountain biking the trails of the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust—a favorite activity for the Bush family—there is always something to do. Both Kennebunk and Arundel have entrances to the Eastern Trail—a section of the East Coast Greenway, popular with those seeking to stretch their legs, no matter the season.
