It is easy to reach and you have plenty of places where to sit and enjoy the ocean. We stopped there during a one day trip from Boston to Portland

On a day trip from Boston and Kennebunkport made a perfect end Point for a coastal drive. Ocean Avenue out of Kennebunkport is a great scenic route to take in ocean vistas and magnificent homes.

We drove out to see the beautiful Maine coast and happened to spot the Bush Compound on the way. We were looking for a park, but apparently missed it along the way. Still glad we drove out this direction!

So pretty. Words can hardly describe it. The color is magnificent. The waves rushing and crashing around the rocks makes a beautiful scene. I have seen this many times.

it was cold out but it was a beautiful drive with beautiful scenery. Worth a nice walk or drive depending on the weather

We really loved walking on the Ocean Avenue. The Ocean waves sometimes crushes soft sometimes hard on the rocks and it’s beautiful. Beaufiful homes also all along the walk.

October can be misty as we had on our first day but when we got to Kennebunkport we were lucky and had super views. Pleasant drive along the coast.

It's not a specific tour that people are commenting on - it's a strip of road/area that is either driven, walked or biked on.
