Kennebunk Beach is a lovely town on the Southern Coast of Maine. When you vacation there, you can enjoy a beautiful house, cottage, or condo. The comforts of home are included in these properties with such perks as cable television, outdoor grills, hot tubs, and free parking.
A kayak trip in the Kennebunk River will give you a different perspective of the Kennebunk area. You can rent a kayak from one of the local shops or bring your own. Additionally, there are guided kayak tours though some people prefer to travel on their own and see the sites without a tour guide. Either way, you will be able to explore the river and its surroundings while enjoying the peaceful experience.
Locally, there are several foods that are exceptional and not often seen elsewhere. The lobster roll, for example, is an iconic sandwich on the Maine coast, and it is easily found at many establishments in Kennebunk Beach. For dessert, you can try the official dessert of Maine, the blueberry pie. You can find this dessert at many restaurants during the blueberry season which is most of the summer. One of the best places to get blueberry pie is Alison’s in the Dock Square shopping area.
Golf is a popular sport and one that many like to play while they are on vacation. Kennebunk Beach offers many nearby golf courses. Right in town, Hillcrest Golf has a driving range and a mini par 3 golf course. In Kennebunk, Cape Arundel and Webhanet Golf Courses both offer 18-hole courses. Additionally, Dungrass and The Ledges are both award winning courses for the more experienced players. And, for the kids, not far away in Wells, Maine are several miniature golf courses that offer family friendly fun.
The winters in Kennebunk Beach are often quite chilly with a good amount of snow. In fact, approximately 41 inches of snow falls annually in this area while the temperatures are in the 20s, 30s, and sometimes 40s. Spring comes to the area by April and lasts through early June. The temperatures are in the 50s and 60s as the flowers begin to sprout and the trees begin to bud. During the summer months, you will enjoy temperatures in the 70s, 80s, and occasionally the 90s.
