A Visit to Kennebunkport, ME Map
Kennebunkport is 83 miles from Boston Logan International, not a long drive but it does take you through some interesting areas. We tend to stay on I-95 till we get to the Kittery area, where we move over to U.S. 1 and continues north through York, Ogonquit, Wells & then Kennebunkport. Slower than I-95, but more scenic and relaxed.
This is the home of some very good friends of ours, a gentleman who was the former CEO & Founder of a company that Celeste used to work for. We spent a great evening with them, had a seafood dinner, some good wine and some great conversation.

Kennebunkport Street Scenes
Typical street as we walked about Kennebunkport, it is scenic in every direction.
We were walking south on Route 9 when this picture was taken, that is the Clam Shack on the right looking at the Kennebunkport Marina in the distance.
This is the view from the southern entrance (along route 9), where cars cross over the old bridge into the village. The Atlantic Ocean is off to the right, and the inlet is just ahead. This bridge was constructed in 1933 and was replaced in 2017.
The harbor was obviously packed this day! You can see a few of the water-side restaurants in
