Christmas in Kennebunkport

There are limited things to do in the chilly wintertime and during a pandemic, but we managed to find one fun activity to entertain ourselves. With the town decked to the nines, Sightseeing in Kennebunkport was just what we needed to help make our spirits bright!


Dock Square

In the middle of the square stands a tall Christmas tree topped and decorated all over with lobsters. The shops are lined with lights and wreaths hang from almost every building.


Creative Restaurant Seating

Several restaurants around Kennebunkport offer heated outdoor seating. We saw igloos, gondolas, and gingerbread houses. Although this experience looks great, you will need to reserve seating ahead of time (more than a week in advance) because these spots will be all booked up!


Additional Photo Ops

Next to the Boathouse Restaurant is a bridge wrapped in a light tunnel, a perfect place for some Instagram-worthy shots! Also, you can find plenty of holiday decorations like Santa's sleigh and the North Pole mailbox around the town.



Of course, our trip wouldn't be complete without a coffee. We grabbed a hot drink from the Mornings in Paris cafe before heading out. I went with a sweet combination of white chocolate and berries called the "Snow Berry Latte" from the holiday drink menu. Yum!


Stay warm, safe, and healthy. Happy holidays from The Maine Chick!
