Destination guide

Kennebunk welcomes you to the Maine event

Following the Mousam River inland from the Gulf of Maine on the Atlantic Ocean, the idyllic town of Kennebunk is the picture-perfect image of Maine coastal living. First settled in 1621, the charming village, rocky coastlines, and waves crashing on the beaches look like something out of a movie. Together with the neighboring town of Kennebunkport, the Kennebunks are the epitome of the New England simple life. A Kennebunk vacation rental will have you rubbing elbows with a mix of vacationers and locals, and maybe even a former President or two. And of course, there's lobster and blueberries – this is Maine, after all.
