Dedication

Robert Dennis photo

This year’s Go Kennebunks is dedicated to the loving memory of Barbara and George H.W. Bush. For many years, those of us at the Chamber have answered one question more than any other: How do I get to Walker’s Point? The Bush family compound, it was home for half of the year to President and Mrs. Bush, and a gathering spot for generations of their family. When we lost both Mrs. and President Bush in 2018, we didn’t know if that question would stop being asked. It hasn’t. It’s a testament to both Mrs. Bush and 41, as he was known, that the love they had for this community – and the love this community had for them – has endured. History was made here, with visiting heads of state making the trip to Kennebunkport to talk over world issues, first with 41, and then with his son and 43rd president, George W. Bush. And, of course, who could forget 41 celebrating his 85th and 90th birthdays by jumping out of

a plane, landing to kisses from Barbara at St. Ann’s Church along Ocean Avenue. It was an indelible image broadcast around the country. While the Bushes may have brought the world to our doorstep, it was the peace and sense of place that brought them to the Kennebunks for generations. Mrs. Bush and 41, particularly, seemed to revel in their quieter life here, whether it was zipping up and down the Kennebunk River for him, or strolling with her beloved dogs on Gooch’s Beach for her. Their loss has been deeply felt by their many friends and fans in our community. But we know that their legacy will live on in the community they loved in An Anchor to Windward, Ganny’s Garden and Walker’s Point, where their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren still gather today. So while President and Mrs. Bush may be gone, they will never be forgotten by this community they loved so well. — Laura Dolce, Executive Director

Walker’s Point

The Bush estate is located on Walker’s Point along Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport.

Robert Dennis photos

The summer home of the late President George H.W. Bush and Barbara, Walker’s Point has been visited by presidents, foreign heads of state and celebrities alike over the years. More importantly, though, it has been a haven for generations of Bush family members, who have enjoyed idyllic summer days away from the pressures of the outside world. Walker’s Point is not open to the public, but you can drive by or stop briefly at the scenic parking overlook to snap a quick picture. Vehicles may only stop in the designated parking area; stopping on the road is not permitted. To get to Walker’s Point, take Ocean

Avenue from Dock Square for approximately two miles. The ride is beautiful in and of itself, with the Atlantic crashing against the rocks along the right side of the road. Just before you reach Walker’s Point you’ll see the special overlook spot (please obey the rules posted on the sign) on the right. Also overlooking the house and on the right is the Anchor to Windward, the town’s special tribute to “41” installed in 2009.

Local Beaches

With abundant sand and surf, Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunk is a popular spot on a summer day.

Laura Snyder Smith photo

Maine has more than 5,000 miles of coastline, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire state can be found here in the Kennebunks. Whether you’re a family looking to set up for that perfectly relaxing day at the beach or a surfer hoping to catch the ultimate wave, the beaches in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport offer some of the best fun in the sun. Kennebunk Beach: Mother’s, Middle & Gooch’s (Beach Avenue) These long, wide sandy beaches (and even rocky Middle Beach) are the perfect place to walk, sun yourself, play in the surf, look for sea treasures or just enjoy the sight of the waves rolling onto shore. There’s no better place to be on July 4, when fireworks explode overhead in a myriad of glittering lights. There are lifeguards and porta-potties at both Gooch’s Beach and Mother’s Beach from July through Labor Day. Mother’s Beach has a playground open to the public. While visitors are welcome at these beaches, a permit to park at the beach is required. Non-resident daily ($25), weekly ($100) and seasonal ($200) passes are easily available at the three parking kiosks and at the Kennebunk Town Hall. For more information, call the Kennebunk Town Hall at (207) 985-2102. 12 | gokennebunks.com


Local Beaches

Colony Beach on Kennebunkport’s Ocean Avenue offers free, but limited, parking.

Goose Rocks Beach (King’s Highway, off Route 9, north of Cape Porpoise) At three miles long, Goose Rocks Beach is a favorite with walkers as well as the sand pail set. The beach is wide, smooth, sandy and affords wonderful views of Eastern Goose Rocks and Timber Island, just off the coast. Parking permits are required ($25/$100/$200; note that Kennebunk permits cannot be used here) and are available at the Kennebunkport Police Station, Town Hall and the Goose Rocks General Store. For information and prices, call the police station at (207) 967-2454. Colony Beach (off Ocean Avenue, near the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport) This beach (also known as Arundel Beach) is much appreciated by those who love to scramble on its rocks and watch the surf dash the shore. No parking permit is needed. Beach Wheelchairs Thanks to fundraising and generous donors, the Kennebunks now have two new beach wheelchairs for public use! Both are available to rent for a small fee through the towns’ recreation departments, Kennebunk Rec (207-604-1335) and Kennebunkport Parks & Recreation (207-967-4304).

Year-Round Appeal While thousands of people visit the Kennebunks in the summer, the region has something going on all year long. Autumn: Veteran leaf-peepers know there’s no better place to be in all the world than New England in the fall. Sunshine is bounteous and the days are still pleasant, but the views, oh the views! Imagine the flame-colored leaves – gold, scarlet and burnt orange – against the blue of the sky or ocean and you’ll get the idea. The fall is also a great time to do some antique hunting, check out local fairs, yard sales and farmers markets and, of course, take a walk on the (less crowded) beach. Winter: Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice skating – these are just a few reasons to visit our region in the wintertime. Need a few more? How about cozy inns, restaurants serving up everything from comfort foods to haute cuisine, and plenty of pre-holiday shopping? Of course no discussion of winter in the Kennebunks would be complete without mentioning 16 | gokennebunks.com

the Kennebunkport Business Association’s Christmas Prelude. Now in its 38th year, Prelude features two weeks of magical holiday events (christmasprelude.com). And in February, we Paint the Town Red with a special Valentine’s theme and events. Spring: The flowers are bursting, the temps are warming up and the beaches are nearly empty – spring in the Kennebunks has great appeal for those seeking a quieter visit. Farmers markets are just setting up and offering the season’s Robert Dennis photos freshest produce and treats, while garden centers are filled to the brim with plants and flowers. Summer: What can we say? People travel from all over the world to our region in the summer, whether it’s to spend some quality beach time, take in our history or maybe just a little shopping and dining out. You can go whale watching by day, eat a lobster on an outdoor deck by night, or simply pack a picnic and spend the entire day on the beach. Take in a play at the Ogunquit Playhouse, catch some live music at Vinegar Hill, or visit one of the area’s many historical offerings.


Favorite Photo Spots The Kennebunks is one of the most photogenic communities in the world, and we are lucky to have so many talented local photographers who remind us of this with their striking images. Around every corner awaits the next best shot, which differs in every season, in the changing light of the day. So where can you find the best shot? We asked our local photogs. C.A.

In the Kennebunks there is something for everyone.

Whale Watching

Did you know that Kennebunk is the only town in York County to still offer whale watching boat trips? And that the First Chance Whale Watch and New England Eco Adventures are the only whale watching boats operating between Portsmouth and Portland? Visitors are lucky to have the opportunity to travel offshore to the feeding grounds of finbacks, minkes, humpbacks and even the rare blue

whale or endangered right whale. Along the way, you might even see some dolphins at play, or other sea life as you take in vistas that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. New England Eco Adventures will be offering a three-hour sunset cruise this summer as well. For tour information, go to firstchancewhalewatch.com and newenglandecoadventures.com.

Life on the Water

There are plenty of ways to enjoy local rivers and the ocean.

Laura Snyder Smith photo

The Kennebunks share a common seafaring heritage, and that love of life on the water continues today. While fishermen make daily use of the region’s piers, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the beautiful rivers and ocean in the area. Options include deep sea fishing tours, kayak and boat rentals, whale watching trips, lobster cruises, schooner rides and more. If surfing is more your speed, Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunk is a popular spot, and surf and paddleboard rentals (not to mention wetsuits – Maine water can be chilly!) can be found nearby.

“The Perfect Day” You’ve only got the afternoon to “experience the Kennebunks,” so what do you do? Here’s our favorite three-hour tour:

Capshore Photography

Drive along Beach Avenue from Cooper’s Corner and take in the Kennebunk beaches, Gooch’s, Middle and Mother’s. Feeling adventurous? Park (legally) and get out and sink your toes into the sand, or take a swing at the playground on Mother’s Beach. Then, dust off the sand, head back to the car and loop around in front of KBIA and drive back to Lower Village/Dock Square. (You can take in much the same sights – with narration! – on a 45-minute Intown Trolley tour.) Grab a lobster roll to go (every eatery makes one!) and a whoopie pie. Nothing says “taste of Maine” like those two. If you’re feeling adventurous, wash it down with a bottle of Moxie.

12:45

Better yet, do a tasting at Kennebunkport Brewing Co., the birthplace of Shipyard Ale, then wander next door to Honeymaker Meadworks for mead (think wine with honey) sampling. Steps away is Batson River Brewing & Distilling, and the new Sweetgrass Winery & Distillery.

“The Perfect Day” Do a little shopping! We have everything from fine art to T-shirts, candy to clothing.

1:45 PM

Shopped ‘til you dropped? Head back to the car and see where generations of the Bush family lived and loved, as well as a symbol of the community’s love for them.

2:45 PM

Take Ocean Avenue out to Walker’s Point, the summer home of the Bush family. Along the way look right and take in the crashing waves. Just before Walker’s Point, pull over at the scenic overlook to grab a photo (history was made here, as two presidents entertained world leaders on the grounds) and read the heartfelt message from the locals to the elder President Bush on the monument An Anchor to Windward:

2:50 PM

“For our friend and 41st President George H.W. Bush. As he was for our nation and world during four years of tumultuous and historic change, so, too has Kennebunkport served, in the words of St. Paul, ‘as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stead’ to him. Presented by those who love him as much as he loves this special place.” Kennebunk • Kennebunkport • Arundel Chamber of Commerce | 23

Food & Dining

While you can find something to suit all tastes here, food and drinks with a view is our specialty.

The Maine Lobster Council will tell you that the world’s best lobster comes from Maine. But it’s even better to enjoy that lobster when you’re eating it in Maine. Visiting the Kennebunks, you’ll have the opportunity to do just that, whether you enjoy it at a seaside lobster bake or in one of the area’s lobster pounds, casual eateries or fine restaurants. You can have your lobster any way you like it, in a roll, as part of a pasta dish or in fajitas, also prepared in dozens of different ways, or simply with a little drawn butter on the side. And if lobster isn’t your thing, or you’ve simply eaten your fill, the region boasts 26 | gokennebunks.com

numerous different cuisines including New American, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Mexican and French. It also features dining establishments dedicated to the farm-to-table movement, continental cuisine and pub fare. In fact, the Kennebunks boast dining options of all kinds, from a well-known take-out stand to a AAA Five-Diamond Award-winning restaurant, and everything in between.

CA Smith Photography

What could be a more perfect backdrop for your wedding than the beautiful beaches and deep blue water of the Kennebunks? How about a stone church perched above crashing waves? Or an antique farmhouse overlooking the marsh? Or a turn-of-thecentury resort with a rolling green lawn?

Sunset kayak tour? Check. Sunrise breakfast on the beach? Check. Evening cocktail cruise? Check. Trolley tours? A plethora of shopping? Relaxing spas? Check, check and check.

All of these venues – and more – are available for those looking to exchange vows in Maine. In the last decade, the Kennebunks have become one of the country’s premier destination wedding locations, primarily because of the local beauty, but also because of the many activities your wedding party and guests can enjoy here. The destination is perfect C.A. Smith and welcoming for all couples. Photography Kennebunk • Kennebunkport • Arundel Chamber of Commerce | 57

Downtown Kennebunk

Stop and smell the beautiful flowers that accentuate downtown Kennebunk.

Looking for a quiet place to take a stroll and experience a real New England town? Look no further than downtown Kennebunk, with its roots firmly embedded in centuries of history but planning ahead for a vibrant future. You’ll appreciate the benches, flowers and pedestrian plaza (a perfect spot to eat breakfast or lunch outdoors!) while strolling along past unique shops, numerous eateries and lovely parks. Downtown Kennebunk is where you’ll find the thriving Farmers Market from spring to fall, numerous events from May Day to Harvestfest, and ice skating at the Waterhouse Center in the winter. And speaking of parking, free municipal 100 | gokennebunks.com

Robert Dennis photo

parking is available behind the Waterhouse Center or A Place to Start at the corner of Main and Grove streets. Heading north up Main Street, past the beautiful Kennebunk Free Library on your left and the Brick Store Museum and Town Hall on your right, bear right onto Summer Street. There you’ll find the gracious sea captains’ homes of days gone by, as well as the most photographed home in Maine, The Wedding Cake House, on your left. Or you can head out to West Kennebunk, to walk or bike the Eastern Trail, stop for a bite to eat or drive through the countryside.


Lower Village

The Kennebunk River divides Kennebunk’s Lower Village, and Kennebunkport’s Dock Square.

In this vibrant section of Kennebunk called Lower Village, located just a stroll across the bridge from Dock Square, you can find shops offering everything from souvenirs to surf boards along with fabulous eateries specializing in cuisines from all over the globe. The accommodations range from upscale inns to comfortable hotels to bed and breakfasts and rental homes. Only the Mat Lanigan Bridge stands between Lower Village and Kennebunkport’s Dock Square.

Dock Square

Kennebunkport’s Dock Square is colorful no matter the season.

Robert Dennis photos

The heart of Kennebunkport, Dock Square is full of the bustle and energy that draws people to the Kennebunks. From here you can take a cruise, browse through dozens of unique shops and experience the world-class cuisine for which the region has become known. Park on the street (be sure to obey the posted rules), in the for-pay municipal lot behind Alisson’s, or at the free municipal lot on North Street next to the Village Fire Department, and spend hours strolling, shopping and dining. On Memorial Day, take in the pageantry of the parade, and return for the first two weeks in December, when Christmas Prelude lights up the town and fills it with events from tree lightings to parades to 102 | gokennebunks.com

Dock Square during Christmas Prelude

craft fairs galore. Just up Spring Street you’ll find the majestic White Columns, where in-season tours are offered that will give visitors a taste of life in the past. Around the corner on Maine Street, historic homes – several of them now inns – are worthy of a look as you stroll or drive past.


Cape Porpoise

Cape Porpoise Harbor is known for its local color.

Not far from the Bush compound at Walker’s Point, just along Route 9, you’ll find the lovely village of Cape Porpoise. This authentic fishing village remains active to this day, with many lobstermen bringing in their catch here. Just across from the pier you’ll see Goat Island Light, a Kennebunkport Conservation Trust property restored to its former glory.

Cape Porpoise is a small village in Kennebunkport.

Arundel

Arundel is more of a rural community than its neighbors, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport.

Chris Becker photo

One of the fastest-growing communities in Maine, Arundel is a blend of future-thinking enterprises and rural charm. It is also home to the Vinegar Hill Music Theatre, Bentley’s Saloon and numerous antique markets and a classic car lot along what can be called “Antique Alley.” You can also access the Eastern Trail in Arundel (see our section on cycling/walking for more details), find a variety of farmstands in season and enjoy stunning foliage on an autumn drive. 104 | gokennebunks.com

Moving here

Lumina by Marina Photography

Those who live here agree: The Kennebunks is the best community to call home! In 2015, Down East Magazine named the Kennebunks a Reader’s Choice “Best Places to Live” community; in 2014, the honor went to Arundel!

Did we mention superior education? U.S. News & World Report in 2016 ranked Kennebunk High School as the fifth best in Maine out of 113 schools. Only 26 Maine schools made the ranks from the 31,242 U.S. public high schools considered.

We couldn’t agree more. The communities offer all the necessary components for good quality of life — superior education, low crime rate, superb beaches, rivers, parks and trails, and great neighbors. It’s also rich with architecture, boutique shopping, art galleries and a variety of restaurants.

Kennebunk was also ranked Maine’s “safest city” for the past four years, according to Safe Choice Security, citing its low violent crime and property crime rates. Won’t you join us in living “the way life should be”?

Retiring Here

Life is good for retirees in the Kennebunks.

Lumina by Marina photos

The Kennebunks have it all when it comes to retirement. Besides the beautiful scenery and relaxed lifestyle, the thriving community offers a convenient location, a variety of health-care and recreation options, as well as quality retirement centers. Taking these all into account, SmartAsset recently ranked Kennebunk as the No. 1 retirement community in Maine, and No. 36 nationally. According to this report, 30 percent of Kennebunk’s population is retirement age, and this community has vibrant retirement and recreation centers for our senior population. 106 | gokennebunks.com

Want to know more? Ask a senior citizen (they’re involved in everything from running our towns’ festivals to volunteering in the local classrooms) and they’ll tell you why they love to call the Kennebunks home.

History White Columns Kennebunkport The First Families Kennebunkport Museum, at White Columns in the heart of Kennebunkport, offers visitors a chance to tour an 1853 Greek Revival home and view exhibitions covering two centuries of local history, from sea captains to presidents. Guided tours present stories and artifacts from the lives of Charles and Celia Perkins, whose fortunes were connected to the thriving shipbuilding era of Kennebunkport. The museum also features sea captains and shipbuilders to rusticators to Kennebunkport’s most famous summer resident, late President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush and their family. There is also a Museum Store with a selection of maritime history collectibles, presidential memorabilia, and unique Kennebunkport treasures. — Kennebunkport Historical Society 112 | gokennebunks.com

Arundel history In the mid-1600s, Arundel’s first settlers kept close to the coastline both for easy access to the ocean and to escape from local Native Americans. The settlers finally abandoned the settlement in the late 1600s and did not return until around 1720 when relations with Native Americans improved. The new settlement, named Arundel, grew along the Kennebunk River. After 1750, people began to settle west of what is now Route 1 and started farming the rest of Arundel. Around 1800, as the religious climate changed, small churches and meeting houses served to draw the local people together. Although those small churches have disappeared, several of the early farms and a few of the farmhouses still exist today. When Arundel’s secession from Kennebunkport became official in 1916, it lost its direct connection with the coast and remained a rural town composed primarily of farms. Today, Arundel is one of the fastest-growing towns in the state, and is home to both industry and local businesses, while maintaining much of its rural character. — Arundel Historical Society


History Brick Store Museum, Kennebunk Brick Store Museum, Kennebunk: In 1936, in the middle of the Great Depression, Edith Cleaves Barry opened the Brick Store Museum on Main Street in Kennebunk. This town was recognized nationally for its shipbuilding prowess in the 19th century, and by the early 20th century it turned into a nationwide tourist and artist mecca. Though the town preserved its small-town charm, it consistently spearheaded trends on a national level. Edith Barry inherited a brick general store building, built in 1825, from her uncle, William Barry, in the early 1930s, and knew immediately that she would open a museum dedicated to the story of this area. When the Brick Store Museum opened in 1936, it became one of only 10 museums in the entire country to open between the Great Depression

and World War II. Edith Barry funded the museum with her own money and invested her time and hard work for the rest of her life. The Museum absorbed four other buildings on the block, all built between 1810 and 1860, to house its collection of over 70,000 artifacts relating to the culture of the Kennebunks. Today, the museum is open six days a week, offering exhibitions, tours, research and programs year-round. Admission is $7, $6 for seniors, $20 per family ($10 for Family Passes on weekends). For information, visit www.brickstoremuseum.org, or call (207) 985-4802.

Fransiscan Monastery, Kennebunk The Franciscan Monastery Estate was was purchased by Rogers family of Buffalo, N.Y., in 1900. The architectural firm of Green and Wicks was commissioned to build a “splendid house in the Tudor style.” Landscaping was arranged by the Frederick Law

Olmsted Brothers, designers of New York City’s Central Park, and Boston’s Emerald Necklace. In 1947, the estate was purchased by Franciscan Friars who had fled the Soviet Invasion of Lithuania. The home was converted to a monastery, adding the chapel, shrines and statues. Franciscan friars and clergy still live in the monastery, and all are welcome to visit the grounds most days between sunrise and sunset.
