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.

Drive slow and do not be in a rush. Drive out in one direction and then come back. The reason is if you only look at the ocean views you will miss the beautiful homes and inns on the opposite side.

Ocean avenue offers some wonderful ocean side views of beautiful coastal Maine. The rocky shoreline, pounding surf, and tasteful homes and estates offer a glimpse of the lifestyle in the area. It was a really nice drive that ended in the heart of downtown Kennebunkport.

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.
