THINGS TO DO
Kennebunkport Top 10 Beach Town    |    Kennebunkport Area Photos


Socially distanced activities

Looking for something to do and still "keep your distance"? We get it, it may take a bit to feel normal again. Here are some things to do in our area that make the most of our great outdoors!

Take a walk on the beach and breathe in the fresh, salty air.

Hit the trail for a scenic hike or bike ride on the following local properties: 
Arundel Conservation Trust (includes the area's only flow trail for bikes!)
• the Eastern Trail, Hope Woods (new wheelchair accessible trail), Franciscan Monastery, and the Bridle Path.

Raptor Falls Mini Golf and Hillcrest Golf offer some outdoor fun. We have three local 18-hole courses, too!

Seashore Trolley Museum is open every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday to offer kids of all ages an antique trolley ride and train and trolley exhibits, plus a gift shop.

Explore local tidepools. Go between high and low tides at Mother's Beach for some of the best tide pools! Here is a link to our local tide chart.

Catch a drive-in movie or musical concert at Vinegar Hill Music Theatre!

Get out on the water! There are water tours aboard New England EcoAdventures, Rugosa lobster boat tours, scenic shoreline tours aboard Kylie's Chance, whale watching aboard First Chance Whale Watch, plus sailboat tours from the Schooner Eleanor, Pineapple Ketch and Broad Reach Sailing.

Take a walking tour of our towns! Kennebunk's Museum in the Streets includes a series of 25 panels that make up a walking or driving tour. The Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk offers local walking tours, as does the Kennebunkport Historical Society by appointment. New this year, Red Cloak Tours is offering guided walking live "teletours" via phone.

Pick up a picnic lunch from your favorite restaurant and find a scenic spot (one around every bend!)

Download a new book or visit Kennebunk Free Library or Graves Library in 
Kennebunkport. Visit our community's Little Libraries, which are private self-serve collections of books for all ages. 

Check out the lineup of local programs offered by Kennebunkport Rec!

How about some retail therapy? Go for a walk and "window shop" your way through Dock Square!
