An easy and pleasant drive that passes the Bush Compound and presents some spectacular views of the Atlantic shore. Rocky views, some pull in spots to enjoy the views and spectacular homes on the ocean. Take this relaxing drive. You will be amazed.

A stroll along Ocean Avenue is just good for the soul. The ocean all around you as far as you can see with it's relaxing rolling waves. Spouting Rock is so fun to watch. The historical stone church building is amazing. Beautiful houses all along the way. If you are fortunate enough to meet some locals along the way, all... More

Short drive and amazing scenery. Mother Nature at her finest. Rain, wind and cold but worth it for the views!

I love walking up/down Ocean Ave, I... More

Drove on Ocean Ave during winter, but even then it is a must see. Beautiful homes! I always do wonder what the people who own these homes do for a living and why is it that I'm not doing it??

We had so much more fun in Kennebunkport then we thought we would. We met people from all over the country everyone interested in enjoying the beautiful location and dining at the terrific restaurants. My girlfriend and I had so much fun shopping and we really enjoyed our long walk out to the Bush compound.
