    Maine Places to Love: Kennebunkport

    Renowned as a vibrant summer colony and as a home to presidents, Kennebunkport is also “the place to be all year”™ (kennebunkport.org).The town is celebrated for its natural beauty, and includes the historic village of Cape Porpoise; the gorgeous expanse of oceanfront that is Goose Rocks Beach; stunning domestic architecture; lovely inns; and the hub of shopping and restaurants that is Dock Square. Which is also on the water, of course.

  • In southern Maine, few things say “summer” as eloquently as the words “Old Orchard Beach.” Who can resist the walkable town’s gorgeous expanse of sandy oceanfront, or its seasonal attractions such as the Pier, Palace Playland and Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf? Old Orchard Beach has a rich history, too. Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and Frank Sinatra were drawn to perform here; Charles Lindbergh landed here. When visitors discover “OOB,” they return. Residents happily stay put.
