Kennebunk, Maine is a small town vacation destination on Maine's Atlantic Coast. Its beaches, scenic views, quaint downtown, and famous Christmas celebrations make a Kennebunk timeshare the perfect way to come back for more fun and excitement year after year.
Summer is the busiest time in Kennebunk, as families and vacationers come to enjoy the beaches, the shopping in historic downtown, and explore the parks and rivers surrounding the town. June is an especially popular month because of the Kennebunk Festival, Maine's largest food and wine festival. While late fall through early spring is the slowest time of year, travel picks up during December for the 2-week Christmas Prelude, ice skating in the Waterhouse Center, and the many events associated with both festivities.
So Much to Do
A Kennebunk timeshare is not only the best way to celebrate the holidays in this popular seaside town, it also makes for an idyllic summer getaway. With two major beaches, a lively fishing community, and a bustling downtown filled with unique shops, there is no shortage of daytime activities for the entire family. You will not want to miss a drive along Ocean Avenue, watching the ocean vistas flash by and the chance to catch a glimpse of President George Bush's summer home, Walker's Point.
Colony Beach at the mouth of the Kennebunk River is known for its rocky outcrops, perfect for walking at the water's edge while small waves ripple in the water. Goose Rocks Beach is more scenic, overlooking Timber Island with a smooth, sandy beach perfect for spending a leisurely day playing near the water. Whale watching cruises are very popular, delighting vacationers with sightings of the gentle giants who call the northern Atlantic waters their home. You can also head out onto the water in a fishing charter or a romantic sailing cruise. At Cape Porpoise, you'll find the pier and views of Goat Island Light, a working lighthouse dating back to the 1800s.
Wonderful Downtown Area
Dock Square is the commercial heart of Kennebunk. Here, the rich Maine cuisine of lobster, crab, clams, and other mouthwatering seafood awaits you every evening and shops featuring artwork, hand-crafted jewelry, and other souvenirs await your perusal by day. If you are looking for the nightlife before retiring to your Kennebunk timeshare, this is the place to start, especially during the peak of tourist season. For the history buff, the Museum in the Streets walking tour of Kennebunkport will be the best way to explore.
