The small, quaint community of the Kennebunks — made up of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport — is best seen by car or by water, preferably both.

Start your day sailing. Few places in Maine offer the perfect sunrise and sunset, but it’s one of the area’s hidden secrets. Start your morning with an early fishing excursion and get a great view of the harbor and Kennebunkport, where you’ll likely spend the rest of your day.
 
Enjoy walking around Kennebunkport and Dock Square, where most of the action in Kennebunk takes place. Here you’ll find the endlessly charming boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and cafés that lure visitors during the summer.
 
Spend the afternoon on a hike through some of Kennebunk’s nature trails. Take in the beauty of your natural surroundings, and don’t forget your camera — there’s an abundance of wildlife in Maine’s forests, and you never know what you might see.
 
At night, enjoy dinner at one of Kennebunk’s fine-dining restaurants, or head back into Kennebunkport for some more lively evening activities.
