A Kennebunkport Smorgasbord

What is there to do in Kennebunkport anyway?

If you are a resident or a frequent visitor to Kennebunkport, you might respond with, "you gotta be kidding."

A better answer would be to describe the highlights of a leisurely walk down Ocean Avenue along the Kennebunk River. Starting from Dock Square your walk along the river will include beautiful vistas, majestic homes and incredible boats (or ships, or yachts, or whatever they are called when they are that big).

One mile from Dock Square and you reach the icing on the cake. For the lover of the beauty of nature, you have reached a smorgasbord of incredible scenery. By the way, I know all my metaphors are about food. So what?

You have now reached Parsons Way, a strip of land given to the town of Kennebunkport by Henry Parsons so that, "everyone may enjoy its natural beauty."

This walk along the ocean cliffs passes places like Spouting Rock and Blowing Cave and many other ocean-carved rock formations. Each turn in the road exposes a new and dramatic panorama.

Parsons Way begins at the mouth of the River and ends right in front of Walker's Point, another view fit for a president.

A true smorgasbord of picture perfect postcard views.

Oh, don't forget your camera.
