Kennebunkport is a pleasant coastal town known as the summer retreat of the presidential Bush family (the house has been in the family since the 19th century).

On warm sunny days the beaches are a major draw, but Kennebunkport's many small boutiques, art galleries and restaurants make for a pleasant visit at any time of year.

Dedicated shoppers may want to visit nearby Kittery, where dozens of outlets and factory stores offer plenty of bargains.
