The Trip to Utopia

The town was made more famous form George Bush-the old man-coming here for visits for years. When he was President, then the tourism stpped up. Tour buses now come through the town constantly with another 40-50 shoppers and eaters, which is what is offered.

Kennebunk is actually a town off the water, but the Kennbunkport is the main attraction for pfeople coming here. This is where most shops and restaurants are located. Maybe 50 retail shopping places and a dozen restaurants.

The town was established to be a quiet and peaceful palce. It now is overun with the visitors, and locals, I am sure are distressed. They do like the revenue flow, though.

    We drove by Kennebunkport on our last trip to Maine but didn't stop because of the crazy traffic. After reading your tips, if I ever visit, I'll make sure to do so in the off season!

    Your review is a small dose of reality in both how things are in small tourist cities.
