Kennebunkport Maine… “the place to be all year!” Just 90 miles north of Boston and 30 minutes south of Portland, is this splendid little corner of Maine where lobster-men still command the sea, where shop owners greet their visitors like long-lost friends, and where the nostalgia and charm of New England’s old-world villages take us back to simpler times. Historically a fishing village, in recent decades the Kennebunkport has become a popular seaside tourist destination with a small district of souvenir shops, art galleries, seafood restaurants, and bed and breakfasts. Its reputation as an upscale community comes from the numerous large seaside estates along Ocean Avenue and other coastal thoroughfares.
The famous “Bush Compound” is located on Walker’s Point, a peninsula visible from Ocean Avenue. During the fall, Kennebunkport is a frequent stop for tour buses showing visitors the famous New England fall colors.
As of the census of 2010, there were 3,474 people, 1,578 households, and 1,039 families residing in the town.
