So you’ve arrived! Now what? Once you’ve exhausted all that we have to offer at the Rhumb Line — our great outdoor pool, indoor pool on a cloudy day, and endless strawberry smoothies at the poolside bar — it may be time to explore your new home away from home! Here are a few of our favorite things to explore:
Car show at Bentley’s Saloon every Tuesday night! Admission is free, and you can start or finish the night with a sandwich from the restaurant or a beverage from the bar!
Tour the town aboard InTown Trolley! It offers a narrated 60-minute tour among some must-see spots around town, including the beaches, The Fransiscan Monastery, Dock Square and Walker’s Point, home of the Bush family; reservations ($25) now must be made in advance via www.intowntrolley.com.
Rainy day fun at the Maine Classic Car Museum Each of the 50+ cars here have a story, such as America’s holy grail of car collecting, our Tucker 48 #1028, and crowd-pleasers like President Roosevelt’s Packard and Doc Hudson the Fabulous Hudson Hornet. It also includes rare automobilia, historical artifacts and short-subject films.
Vinegar Hill Music Theater is an amazing indoor/outdoor music and movie theater. Check out their schedule here.
All aboard a trolley at the Seashore Trolley Museum for all ages! Take a ride on a heritage railroad in a vintage trolley from the early 1900s, or explore three carhouses filled with a world-renowned collection including everything from the omnibus, to electric streetcars, buses, light rail vehicles, and rapid transit cars — from almost every major city in the United States that had streetcar systems, plus some from across the world! The grounds are open for picnics, and dogs are also welcome!
Free Concerts in the Park at Kennebunk’s Lafayette Park every Wednesday, thanks to Kennebunk Rec!
Kennebunkport Recreation Department is also sponsoring summer concerts (June 16 and Aug. 25)
Maine Foodie Tour offers a taste of the Port! This tour takes a leisurely half-mile walk visiting with shop keepers and food artisans to sip, taste and learn about Maine’s culinary history and vibrant food scene. Tours vary but samplings often include fresh lobster, Maine clam or fish “chowdah,” craft brewed ales or fruit sodas, Maine honey wines and Maine whoopie pies, and fresh-roasted coffee.
Enjoy a guided haunted or historical walking tour with Red Cloak Tours, taking you into the historic district of Sea Captains homes and early settlers to learn of the history, spirits, architecture and folklore.
Get out on the water to see the sights, plus lobster and whales with Nick’s Chance Whale Watch or Kylie’s Scenic Lobster Cruise.
